On August 10th, in Ha Noi, the doctors were able to successfully conduct the operation with the assistance of their Australian colleagues.
The Vietnamese Health Minister, Tran Thi Trung Chien, paid a visit to the patient in the hospital.
While on sight, she asked the hospital to prepare for organ transplants since the national assembly will officially adopt a new law on human organ donation at the end of 2006.
