In a first, Kochi doctors perform dual live-donor transplant
In a significant medical breakthrough and a first in the world, a dual live-donor transplant was performed on a 20-month-old girl, who weighs just seven kgs by doctors at a hospital in Kochi on Saturday. The doctors performed a complex surgery where live-donor liver and kidney transplant took place simultaneously.
Her father and grandmother were identified as the liver and kidney donors, respectively.
