78 year old patient had a successful Liver Transplant!!!
We had a 78-year-old patient from Uzbekistan who had a problem in his liver. His liver was totally damaged and urgently required a transplant surgery. His family reached to us through our website and submitted us the reports and other documents. So, we helped him in getting treatment in Fortis, Gurgaon after all the formalities were done by Konsult.
Background of the Problem
Mr. Abdusatar was having a problem in his Liver. It was not working and around 4L water was stored in his stomach. He had consulted with many doctors in Uzbekistan regarding the problem and they advised him to go abroad for Liver Transplant, as there was no other way to treat the patient. As the patient was quite old so his family decided to go abroad for the treatment of facilities and success rate was high. India was a good option as the flight is direct and depending on the urgency it was favourable too. Hence his family decided to go India for treatment and from there he came to know about Konsult. We showed his reports to Indian doctors and opinion was provided to him along with the cost estimate. The patient came to India on 14th December 2017.

About the Treatment
After an initial evaluation of the patient physically, the patient was advised to undertake several tests related to Kidney and Liver. Blood group, CBC, kft, lfr, blood sugar, HBA, Urine culture, urine routine, viral marker, ptt, pt/inr, chest x ray, ecg ,Echo etc. were done. The results showed that patient was suffering from severe liver damage and a Liver transplant needs to be done at the earliest. It was a long process as various feasibility tests were to be done before the transplant for both the patient and donor. Donor tests include 24hour urine test, CT Angio, DTPA etc. After all the tests and pre-transplant work, the transplant was done. The duration of the treatment was 2 months, which include pre-treatment workup etc. It was successful and the patient was very happy with the results.
