Indian Surgeons Successfully Perform Complex Liver Transplant On Kyrgyz Patient.

A 35-year-old woman from Kyrgyzstan underwent a risky auto liver transplant in Delhi, India, as reported by The Indian Express. The woman had been experiencing abdominal pain for three months and was diagnosed with Echinococcosis Multilocularis, a parasitic infection that had caused severe damage to 75% of her liver. The transplant, which involved removing the damaged part of the liver and replacing it with a healthy part of her own liver, was the only viable treatment option for her condition. One advantage of using her own liver was that it eliminated the need for immunosuppressive medication. The surgery lasted for eight hours, and the patient recovered quickly, being discharged from the hospital on the eighth day in stable condition.

Echinococcosis Multilocularis is a rare health condition with a 10% chance of recurrence if not treated properly. If left untreated, it can affect various organs, including the lungs, kidneys, blood vessels, and intestines of the patient. This case highlights the importance of timely and correct treatment for this condition. The successful auto liver transplant performed by doctors in Delhi showcases the effectiveness of this procedure in treating severe liver damage caused by Echinococcosis Multilocularis. The patient’s quick recovery and stable condition after the surgery demonstrate the positive outcome of the risky procedure.
