More Successful Organ Transplants at MIOT International

The 57-year-old died in an accident opposite Koyambedu police station. His liver, kidneys, heart valves and corneas were donated.

Chennai, India, April 29, 2015 --( On Tuesday morning around 8.30, a man from Avadi was on his way to work on his motorcycle when tragedy struck.

The 57-year-old MTC special grade conductor was heading to Koyambedu market terminus, when he met with an accident just opposite the Koyambedu police station. He was rushed to MIOT hospital, but on Thursday afternoon, was declared brain dead, his colleagues said.

Brain injury

“We did everything we could, but he had a severe brain injury. We informed his family about his condition. On Thursday afternoon, after he died, his family consented to donate his organs,” said Paari Vijayaraghavan, transplant surgeon at the hospital.

The victim’s wife works at a primary health centre and the couple has a son studying engineering, said his colleague, K. Ashok Kumar. Once consent was given, the organs were harvested on Thursday night. The liver went to an extremely sick patient, hailing from Vellore, at MIOT hospital. “The patient is doing very well now,” Dr. Vijayaraghavan said. One of the kidneys was used on another patient at MIOT, while the other went to Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital. The heart valves were taken by Madras Medical Mission and both corneas by Sankara Nethralaya, he said.

“He had only 10 months of service left – he was due to retire in February 2016,” his colleague added.
