Youngest Liver-Transplanted Patient Back Home

45 days after her liver transplant, the youngest liver-transplanted patient, 12-month old Mai Hoang Thanh Giang, was released from hospital on April 28, 2006.

Now, the child can have six feeds of milk and two of porridge a day. She has gained weight from 6.5 kilos to 7.15 kilos and had four teeth.

In her house, there is a special pasteurized room, ensuring the hygienic condition and restriction of contacts to avoid infected diseases.

The doctor will test the development of the new transplanted liver every week and the effect of anti-eliminative medicine.
