Asia’s first successful paediatric bilateral lung transplant

A four-year-old boy from Russia, on ventilator for three years, has successfully undergone a complex bilateral lung transplant. He is the youngest to successfully undergo the lung transplant in India and one of the youngest in Asia. The boy was diagnosed with fibrosing alveolitis at the tender age of two months and was put on a ventilator as his oxygen saturation was extremely low.

He underwent tracheostomy when he was six months old in Russia and was airlifted to MGM Healthcare, Chennai in 2018 for further management and a possible lung transplant. A two-year-old brain dead donor became available in December 2020 in Surat, Gujarat, and the organ was airlifted to Chennai.

After the procedure then, the child was kept under observation in ICU care. The boy is currently off the ventilator and on minimal oxygen support. He will lead a normal life in the future.
