Doctors conduct rare liver transplant on infant

Jan 09, 2020 10:59 IST

Doctors at the Artemis hospital in Gurugram conducted a 'rare' liver transplant on a one-year-old girl from Saudi Arabia. They used a bovine jugular vein of a cow in order to provide blood circulation to the new liver. Since in India, cadavar vein donation is not an option, doctors had to go in for this procedure using an animal vein. It is the first time that this kind of a transplant has been performed in the Delhi-NCR region.
