A strenuous 10-hour operation saves the life of a 24-year-old boy with a rare blood disorder called as Chronic Budd-Chiari Syndrome. Doctors at the Osmania General Hospital (OGH) in Hyderabad performed a rare liver transplantation, which is said to be the first in India.

Naga Raju a resident of Khammam district was suffering from the disease right from his birth. He has been approaching several hospitals in search of a cure for this disorder. After reading a news on first liver transplantation performed at Osmania General Hospital, free of cost, he approached the hospital.

After waiting for a period of 2 months for a liver, doctors finally came with other alternatives. The transplant involves surgically removing the patient's liver and re-implanting it.

They removed the liver from the patient and preserved it outside in cold HTK organ preservative solution for four hours. The blocked blood vessels were reconstructed with artificial grafts and it was implanted again into the patient's body.

"During the surgery, blood supply to abdomen was stopped. Blood supply from lower to upper portion of the body was maintained by connecting blood vessel in groin to a vein in neck," said Dr R Raghu, assistant professor at OGH.

"We discussed with the family members thread bare about the surgery and the risks involved including bleeding, liver failure and death. After this a marathon surgery spread over ten hours we removed the liver from his body after securing bunches of blood vessels. The liver was cooled with cold preservative solutions for 4 hours to prevent its damage due to lack of blood supply," he said.
