Hospital successfully performs double forearm transplant

The patient who received the forearm transplant is an  一 八-year-old man who lost his forearms three years ago due to injuries he sustained in an accidental explosion. 

Since then, he has faced difficulties in his daily life and been unable to pursue his educational dreams.

Now, nearly two months after the surgery, the patient’s wounds have healed and the limbs are adapting well. The patient is able to hold things and use a mobile phone. He still needs to undergo more physical therapy to improve his range of movement.

Dr Mai Hồng Bàng, director of the  一0 八 Military Central Hospital, said the surgery was an outstanding success in the field of limb transplantation in Việt Nam after the success of the first limb transplant from a live donor this January.

The hospital successfully performed five other transplants on the same day.

A lung transplant was carried out on a  五 四-year-old male patient diagnosed with primary pulmonary fibrosis, a liver transplant was carried out for a patient with acute liver failure against a background of cirrhosis due to a hepatitis B virus infection and two kidney transplants were done for two separate patients with end-stage chronic renal failure.

The hospital, in co-ordination with the National Coordinating Centre for Human Organ Transplantation, also carried out a heart transplant for a patient with end-stage dilated myocarditis at the Hà Nội-based Việt Nam-Germany Friendship Hospital.

Bàng said the  一0-hour long surgery to transplant organs for the six patients required very close co-ordination and implementation among specialists in the hospital.

“Twelve operating tables were operating simultaneously with the participation of more than  一 五0 doctors, nurses, pharmacists and technicians. In particular, the lung transplant case was co-ordinated by a team of experts from the Central Lung Hospital,” he said. 

After the transplants, all the patients are in stable health condition. The liver and kidney transplant patients were discharged three weeks after surgery, and the lung transplant patients were discharged four weeks after the procedure. — VNS
