 Green Corridors Facilitate Organ Transplants in Indore

Reinforcing its tag as the organ donation capital of India, Indore once again wrote history on Tuesday with creating 10 green corridors in last one year and saving more than 40 lives that were battling to find a donor to give them a fresh life.

Two green corridors were set up in Indore on to transport heart, liver, kidneys, eyes and skin of a 30-year-old man declared brain dead after a road accident. Heart and liver of the donor, Ramgopal Soni, were transported from Choithram Hospital, where he died, to the airport for airlifting to New Delhi.

The donor, Ramgopal Teli, hailing from Unnao of Uttar Pradesh, was critically injured in a road accident in Barwah town after a loading vehicle hit him. He sustained severe head injury and fell unconscious. He was rushed to Indore for treatment. He was declared brain dead by a team of experts at 3.30 pm and then again at 9.30 pm on Monday.

Members of Indore Organ Donation Society and associated NGOs met Ramgopal's parents and persuaded them to donate his organs. Decision of donating the organs was taken by Ramgopal's father, Sukhlal with a wish to keep his son alive even after death. His decision was supported by other family members and wife of the deceased also.

His heart was transplanted on a 43-year-old man at AIIMS, New Delhi while his liver was not found fit for transplantation owing to some infection. His kidneys were transplanted on two female patients, a 29-year-old from Khargone and a 55-year-old at Indore hospitals. Eyes were given to MK International Eye Bank and skin was banked.

Divisional commissioner Sanjay Dubey, quoting doctors who harvested the organs, said they did not face any major problem in carrying out the operation as both the green corridors functioned smoothly.
