New Delhi, Feb 7: Two kidney failure patients got a fresh lease of life on Sunday, thanks to the noble deed of a family in doting organs of a brain-dead patient and some timely help from Delhi Police. A 38-km ‘green corridor’ was created to transport the harvested kidneys from the Max Super Speciality Hospital in Shalimar Bagh to Vasant Kunj where the two end-stage kidney failure patients were admitted in a hospital, the hospital said in a statement here. While it took only 37 minutes and 45 seconds for a team of experts and police to deliver the organs harvested from a 62-year-old brain-haemorrhaged woman patient, a team of doctors - Dr Sol Gupta, Dr Waheed Zaman and Dr Vikas Aggarwal - worked for more than eight hours to ensure a smooth harvesting and transplanting procedure. “The team worked tirelessly to ensure that the two kidney transplants are carried out successfully. The noble decision of the donorâ’s family has given a new lease of life to two people. We are proud to be a part of such a brave act. We hope millions of others take inspiration from the family of the 62-year old lady,” Dr Zaman said. (IANS)
