Double Green Corridors Give New Lease of Life for Three in Madhya Pradesh

Green corridors have always been a critical part of many successful cases of organ donation and transplantation. Recently, twin green corridors gave a fresh lease of life to three patients in Madhya Pradesh.

A resident of Mahidpur in Ujjain district, Vishwas Joshi, was declared brain-dead in Choithram Hospital. After obtaining consent to donate his organs, a liver patient in Delhi and two kidney patients in Indore were shortlisted for transplantation on the basis of their blood group.

After the organs were harvested, two corridors, one from the hospital to Indore airport and another to a nursing home in Greater Kailash area of the city -- were created for their transportation.

"Two green corridors (freeways that scan red lights) were created. A 13-km-long from a private hospital to the (city) airport by which the liver was transported in 7.5 minutes. Another 10-km-long corridor was laid to a private hospital by which a kidney was carted out in 7 minutes," said Sanjay Dubey, Divisional Commissioner.
