 Multiple Organs Harvested From A Brain Dead Patient

Thota Manikantha (21), admitted at NRI Hospital in Mangalagiri near Vijayawada, was declared brain dead following a road accident on March 3. Manikanta's sister, Jyothi, a paramedical staff convinced the family to donate his organs.

Every reusable organ like heart, lungs, kidneys, eyes and liver of Thota Manikanta were donated to the Jeevadaan organisation.


While the two kidneys were allotted to two patients from Guntur, the lungs and heart of Manikanta were transplanted to a single patient at Fortis Hospital in Chennai. The liver was allotted to a patient at Global Hospitals in Hyderabad. The eyes were grafted to two patients at the NRI Hospital.

The organ donation news took the public and doctors by surprise and everyone was attracted to the news. Doctors from the Chennai Fortis Hospital, who needed lungs and a heart for a patient, flew down to the city in a special aircraft along with paramedical staff. They took the organs to Chennai within hours of extraction from the donor. Cardiac surgeon Dr Gopalakrishnan and anesthesiologist Dr Suresh Rao collected the organs from NRI Hospital at Mangalagiri, where Manikanta had been admitted.
