and in turn,the second person’s relative will donate their kidney back to the first recipient The legal provision for such a transplant were introduced in the bill in 2009 The last two domino kidney transplants in June 2013 involving five pairs and in January 2014 where six pairs of donors and recipients were simultaneously operated in Bombay Hiranandani and Hinduja hospital Mumbai’s third domino kidney transplant is set to be conducted in Mumbai next month with four donor-recipient pairs having undergone tests and now awaiting final permissions for the procedure The four patients have been waiting for a kidney donor for months and have now been brought together by the Apex Swap Transplant Registry (ASTR) a national-level registry that coordinates live kidney transplants A domino transplant involves a donor giving an organ to a patient who is not related to him/her while the donor’s own relative who needs an organ receives it from another patient’s relative Domino kidney transplants have only been recently permitted in the country following an amendment to the Transplantation of Human Organs Act 2011 that previously disallowed donors who were not blood relatives of recipients In mid-May following an approval from the state-run Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) the four pairs will be operated at the P D Hinduja Hospital in Mahim and the Hiranandani Hospital in Powai Share This Article Related Article This is the first domino transplant this year and third so far across the country under ASTR that will be conducted simultaneously in a day Three husband-wife pairs and one pair of an uncle and niece will be wheeled into operation theatres The domino transplant involving several challenges ranging from legal hurdles to the risk posed by even one patient passing away before the date of surgery is useful when a patient with chronic kidney failure is not compatible with any family member for a transplant and therefore requires an unrelated donor “There is no rule on conducting all surgeries in the domino chain in a single day In US it is spread over two-three days But here there is a fear that one person may back off after his relative receives a kidney so we prefer conducting all transplants simultaneously” said Dr Ganesh Sanap ASTR coordinator Since unrelated kidney transplants were permitted in 2011 ASTR has coordinated 40 swap transplants “A domino is however difficult It requires various permissions counseling and co-ordination between hospitals” Sanap added A swap transplant takes place between two pairs of donor-recipient Across India 249 such pairs are currently awaiting a kidney transplant under ASTR the only organisation in India that registers patients for a swap transplant According to Dr N K Hasi head of the nephrology department at KEM Hospital 250 people per million in India suffer from end stage renal failure and require a transplant Dr Alan Almeida who will be conducting one of the four transplants at PD Hinduja Hospital said “A few tests must be repeated 24 hours before the surgery Only then can the transplant be carried out” One of these tests is a final check on whether the HLA or Human Leukocyte Antigen is negative This is conducted to check whether the donor and receiver’s immune systems have similar antigen structure and there is no likelihood of a “kidney rejection” by the recipient’s body If even one patient fails a last-minute test the entire chain of surgeries would have to be replanned Cyril and Arti Di’sa (husband and wife) Arti Di’sa (38) was diagnosed with kidney problems in January 2014 That was however just the beginning of troubles for her Di’sa a housewife from Thane also suffered from low haemoglobin and in August 2014 she required a blood transfusion According to her husband Cyril Di’sa (46) the couple were lucky to share the same blood group B negative and on December 7 last year she was admitted to undergo a transplant with her husband donating one kidney to her “As a protocol the doctors again conducted our blood test To my shock her blood group came borderline positive while mine was still B negative” Cyril said The government hospital in Kalwa where Di’sa had undergone blood transfusion in August 2014 had accidentally transfused B positive blood instead of B negative blood group The transplant was cancelled “After the transfusion she vomited suffered lose motions and lost 12 kgs weight We only understood what went wrong when her blood test were conducted” Cyril alleges adding that he does not wish to file a police complaint as getting her a new kidney is his only priority In January this year the couple registered for a swap or domino transplant They were lucky to get a match within two months Cyril a worker in a private pharmaceutical company will now donate his one kidney to Farooq Hashmi at P D Hinduja hospital Mahim while his wife will receive a kidney from Arti Tungare whose husband Makrand Tungare will get a donation from a third family Dr Alan Almeida who will operate on Arti said “In our last attempt tests showed that her antibodies can reject the kidney This time we need to be sure A cross match will be conducted before the transplant to ensure that” he said Says Di’sa “I have been undergoing dialysis twice a week lately This is my only shot at getting a new kidney I hope it works” Farooq and Maimuna Hashmi (husband and wife) The search for a kidney has been the hardest ever search for the Hashmi couple residing in a one-room-kitchen in Lohar Chawl with a family of four others Next month Farooq Hashmi (43) will finally get a kidney from Cyril Di’sa in P D Hinduja Hospital while his wife Maimuna Hashmi (37) will donate her kidney to Mangala Gawri at Hiranandani hospital The couple is however apprehensive: The cost of the surgery is Rs 814 lakh their monthly income from a streetside cold-drink stall is Rs 12000 per month “The hospital has waived half the cost but I still have to raise Rs 4 lakh” a tense Maimuna says Hashmi was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease in 2013 after uncontrolled diabetes affected his kidney functioning Since the last nine months he is solely dependent on dialysis at a cost of Rs 250 per visit in a charitable trust Even Farooq’s mother has been on dialysis for the last three years The couple however have not opted to get a kidney donated to her owing to her heart problems and old age Maimuna has visited 15 hospitals till now she says adding: “If I could I would have given both my kidneys to him” They registered for domino transplant in December last year and were informed about a match in February this year “But we needed a police verification for proceeding with the transplant The Mahim police has been very non-cooperative They do not even understand what domino transplant is” Maimuna claims While Farooq is now visiting different charitable trusts Maimuna is making rounds of police stations to get police verifications and is wondering how to raise funds Makrand and Arti Tungare (Husband and wife) This Pune-based couple was on the lookout for an O positive blood group donor for over a year they had scanned their family tree and found no match That’s when in June 2014 43-year-old Makrand Tungare’s wife Arti Tungare (37) suggested to become a donor herself and urged her husband to register themselves in the ASTR “I never consumed alcohol or smoked Kidney ailment has been a hereditary problem in our family I was diagnosed first in 2000” says Makrand an entrepreneur in Pune’s Sinhgad Road The 43-year-old had been surviving on medications to support his kidney Since 2013 he has been opting for dialysis twice a week stripping him off of Rs 124 lakh every year “The doctor had suggested a transplant last year itself But since he is O positive we never found a match until now” said Arti Makrand’s wife In May Suraj Yashwant also O positive will donate a kidney to Makrand Suraj is the uncle of the fourth recipient in the domino Dr Rajesh Kumar nephrologist at Hiranandani Hospital where Makrand’s transplant will be conducted said that since the HLA test was negative the transplant is expected to “proceed smoothly” “In the last 15 years the rate of rejection of kidney through transplant has reduced from 20 per cent to 5 per cent We have options like immuno-suppressors and antibiotics to facilitate successful transplants” Kumar said According to him Thymoglobulin injections— used to reduce chances of kidney rejection— have become a popular choice for transplant surgeons Arti has however been agitated over the past few days “He (Makrand) has developed a fever And he needs to be healthy for the transplant Only few days are left”she says Makrand was on April 26 admitted at Hinduja hospital for immediate stabilisation Suraj Yashwant and Meghna Gangwal (Maternal uncle and Niece) Meghna Gangwal (52) (name changed) a housewife from Mumbai was detected with kidney ailment a year ago “Her case is unique” Sanap says While Gangwal’s uncle Suraj Yashwant (53) (name changed) who has O positive blood group was willing to donate his kidney to her (she is A positive) the doctors were able to convince the pair to instead postpone the transplant and get themselves registered for a domino Despite her year long ailment the pair got registered with ASTR Sanap says “O positive blood group are universal donors The uncle’s kidney could have been more useful for another O positive blood group recipient Since Gangwal belongs to A positive blood group she can easily get another A positive donor” An O positive blood group recipient can only receive kidney from the same blood group while an A positive blood group recipient can receive from both A positive and O positive blood group In this case Makrand Tungare had been on the look out for an O positive donor since 2013 Yashwant’s registration opened a window for his long awaited transplant “We thought we’ll have to try hard to convince them to get registered and wait longer But the uncle readily agreed to help someone else” Sanap said Gangwal will now undergo a transplant at Hiranandani hospital where Maimuna Hashmi will donate a kidney to her Simultaneously her uncle will donate his kidney to Tungare at the same hospital Gauri’s husband confided “Currently we are more worried about the process and what the outcome will be It is such a big chain We don’t want everyone to know about it before it’s even successful” [email protected] For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related
