Green Corridor Gives New Lease Of Life To Four Patients

A 28-year-old man, who died in a road accident at Aurangabad, saved four lives by donating his heart, liver, and two kidneys.

A green corridor was created to facilitate the transport of the organs, from Aurangabad to Pune. The liver was brought in with a police escort team to Ruby Hall Clinic within three hours.


"Our team, headed by chief liver transplant surgeon Dr Manish Varma, Dr Kamalesh Bokil, Dr Anand Kakkar and others, went to Aurangabad on Saturday itself," said Dr Sheetal Dhadphale, chief of the liver transplant unit at Ruby Hall Clinic.

A green corridor was created from Seth Nandlal Dhoot Hospital at Aurangabad to the airport where a special aircraft flew the heart to Chennai's Fortis hospital. The heart was transplanted to a 16-year-old boy.

The liver was harvested in the 50-year old man who has been suffering from end-stage liver disease since 2013. "The green corridor is indeed a marvel as it has helped save multiple lives," said Bhomi Bhote, CEO of Ruby Hall Clinic.

"This is the fourth such instance of a green corridor set up in Pune. Meanwhile, our counterparts in Aurangabad and Ahmednagar too set up the green corridor along the 240-km route. The entire distance that takes a minimum of five hours was completed in three hours,"police authorities said.

Rambhau Ubale (28) a resident of Wai village in Mantha village, Jalna district, had suffered a head injury in a road accident and had been taken to Lifecare Hospital at Aurangabad.

However, he was declared brain dead. After counseling his family, consented to organ donation, he was taken to Seth Nandlal Dhoot Hospital where several legal procedures were completed.
