Two cadaver donations in 48 hours give new lease of life to 8 patients Posted On: 02-Mar-2019
MUMBAI: Two back-to-back cadaver donations in the last 48 hours have given a new lease of life to eight organ failure patients this week. After last year’s slump, the programme has seen an encouraging start this year.
There have been 19 cadaver donations within the first two months of the year, or more than a third of donations recorded in the whole of last year (48). The donations facilitated 36 life-saving transplants so far, including 17 kidney, 13 liver and five heart surgeries. The city has also sent a heart and a lung to Chennai.
