Radha Rani's kidneys were transplanted into two patients at SMS
Hospital. Her liver was sent to Army's RR Hospital in Delhi through a special
Indian Air Force helicopter where it was transplanted into a patient who
happens to be the wife of a soldier.
State Health Minister Rajendra Rathore said it was the first of
its kind cadaver transplant in a government hospital in the state, addressing a
press conference here on Wednesday.
"The donor had been brought to the hospital on February 22 from
Sawai Madhopur but was declared brain dead on Tuesday. While one recipient Braj
Kishore (47) was admitted in the same hospital, another patient Shakuntala (50)
was admitted at Mahatma Gandhi Hospital from where she was shifted to SMS
Hospital for the transplant," he said.
Meanwhile, the hospital got in touch with RR Hospital
in New Delhi where a patient needed a liver transplant.
