Pakistani Child is India's Youngest Liver Transplant Recipient

A one-year-old Pakistani boy has undergone a successful liver transplant in a New Delhi hospital, becoming the youngest ever such recipient in India// , said doctors here Wednesday.

Shreyar, who is from Karachi, underwent the over eight-hour-long liver transplant surgery on June 19 at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital here. He was discharged on July 21, doctors at the private hospital said.

"Shreyar is now completely cured. He has become the youngest kid to undergo a complete liver transplant in India," said B.K. Rao, chairman of the hospital's board.

A.S. Soin, leading liver transplant surgeon who had conducted the surgery on Shreyar, said: "The child was born with biliary atresia, a condition in which the bile ducts of the liver (responsible for draining the bile produced in the liver into the intestinal tract for digestion) are under-developed. The problem causes jaundice, pale stools and lack of digestion soon after birth."

"The damaged liver of the child was replaced by a portion of his grandmother's liver. He is now absolutely fine," Soin told reporters.

Another doctor, Neelam Mohan, said that Shreyar had undergone an operation in Pakistan when he was three months old, but it was unsuccessful.

"The next few months were miserable for the infant - his physical growth was retarded. When he came to our hospital, his weight was just six kg. We worked on his health and after six weeks his weight was increased to over nine kg - which is what it was at the time of operation," Mohan told IANS.

She said the portal vein responsible for supplying blood to the liver was "irreparably blocked", which caused them a lot of problems during the surgery. The blockage was rectified by the doctors, she said.

Shreyar has been told to take two medicines all his life, which most liver transplant patients are recommended.
