Two Sisters Each Donate Half of Their Liver to Save Brother's Life in India
"While two of his sisters were eligible donors, they were both much lighter. Therefore, he required half a liver from both his sisters. To fit in both halves whilst keeping him from sinking through the long surgical procedure was challenging. Akshat and his sisters had an excellent recovery after the surgery and are now enjoying normal lives a month later," a doctor said during a press conference on Saturday.
14-year-old becomes the first child in India to undergo a dual lobe liver transplant at @medanta by @ArvinderSoin successfully. A rare surgery in which two sisters donated their (parts of) liver to save their brother.
