First Time Ever: Kamineni  Performs Zero Blood Transfusion Liver Transplant

Kamineni Hospital has created a history of sorts by successfully performing a rather complicated liver transplant on a 49-year-old businessman from Durg, Chattisgarh. The patient was suffering from hepatocellular carcinoma, a terminally ill liver disease. 


This particular cancer of the liver is caused by liver cirrhosis or Hepatitis B or C infections. The team was led by Dr. Rajasekhar Perumalla, a Hepatobiliary and Liver Transplant specialist. It is indeed a rare milestone as the doctor, and his team performed the transplant with intraoperative blood loss of less than 500ml. The point to note is that they did not transfuse any blood, a benchmark that is difficult to surpass even in renowned global centers.


The patient approached Kamineni after consulting doctors in Chennai and Hyderabad for a second opinion, complaining of weight and appetite loss.  The patient was Hepatitis B positive, was suffering from related chronic liver disease, liver cirrhosis with portal hypertension, and was undergoing treatment for the past two years. An examination at Kamineni showed a lesion in the right lobe of the liver, and suspicion of hepatocellular carcinoma was confirmed.


Since there was no scope for a living-related donor liver transplantation, as none of his relatives were 0+, he was registered under the government’s Jeevandan Program and had to wait for a month to find a suitable cadaver liver. Incidentally, the cadaver organ was donated by the family of a 30-year-old male coal cutter from Singareni Colleries, who died in a road accident.


The team completed the marathon surgery in a record 8 hours, which is again a first in the annals of medical history. The team also comprised Dr. Kishan Nunsavata, a medical gastroenterologist; Dr. Biswaroop Pai, liver transplant ICU specialist; and Dr. Satyanarayana, a surgical gastroenterologist. The transplant has paved the way for liver transplantation becoming less riskier and being accessible to more patients, said Dr. Gayatri Kamineni, Dy COO, Kamineni Hospitals.
