Daughter receives kidney transplant from mother

Surgeons of Saint Paul Hospital in Hanoi December 28 performed a kidney transplant on a 30 year old woman with end-stage renal disease.

Donor is her 50 year old healthy mother who makes a good match to donate one of her kidneys to the 30-year-old daughter. Both of them came from the northern province of Thai Binh.

The sick kidney was replaced after 15 minutes. Two hours after the operation, the donor was wide awake and was transferred to intensive care unit. Both of kidneys operated quite well after the surgery.

This was the first successful case of its kind to be carried out by doctors of Hanoi’s health sector with the consultation of experts from Medical Institute 103.
