Combined Kidney And Pancreas Transplant Performed At Osmania General Hospital, Hyderabad

The Osmania General Hospital (OGH) in Hyderabad claimed that it has carried out a complex transplantation surgery involving pancreas and kidney on a young diabetic patient with kidney failure.

The procedure, which took 23 hours, was performed by a team led by Dr Madhusudan, HoD, surgical gastroenterology, urologist Ramakrishna Prasad, nephrologist Manisha and anesthetist Deepraj Singh. This was a first of its kind for government hospitals in India.

"Pancreas transplantation is very much complex and serious surgery which requires multiple blood vessels anastomosis," it said.

The patient, 26 year old Ganesh a resident of Nalgonda district of Telangana who hails from a poor family, suffered from juvenile diabetes (Type 2 diabetes) and multiple complications including chronic kidney failure and bilateral retinopathy. He was on dialysis for last two years.

"He needed a pancreas transplantation as it had stopped producing insulin, leading to high blood sugar level. Before the surgery, the patient's blood sugar was at a high 600 mg/dl. He needed 60 units of insulin every day to survive," said Dr Ch Madhusudhan, adding that the Ganesh developed bilateral kidney failure since 8 years and was on regular dialysis at OGH since then.

The organs were harvested from a 23-year-old person who was declared brain-dead after he was severely injured in a road accident in Karnataka.

The patient is recuperating well. Blood sugars levels are near normal without insulin and kidney function is improving steadily.

Combined pancreas and kidney transplantation is done at a very few places world-over, the release said.

Telangana Health Minister C Laxma Reddy congratulated the Osmania General Hospital on this landmark achievement.

A similar surgery would cost around Rs. 30-40 lakh in private hospital, while it was done free of cost at OGH, the release added.
