slide 1: BGS Global Hospitals Performs the 1st Successful Simultaneous Pancreas- Kidney Transplant in Karnataka BGS Global Hospitals - Super Specialty Quaternary Care organised a press conference on performing the 1st successful simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant in Karnataka on 29-year- old Shakeer D from Bangalore. The patient was first treated by Dr Anil Kumar and the surgery was performed by Dr Rajeev Lochan Dr Mathew Jacob and Dr Sonal Asthana. The 29-year-old underwent a deceased donor simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant at BGS Global Hospital 5 weeks ago. He had been suffering from Type 1 Diabetes requiring insulin since the age of 12 and had also developed diabetes-related complications - retinopathy diabetic nephropathy and end stage kidney failure over the past two years which required dialysis. His blood sugar control was very erratic and frequent trips for dialysis and repeated admissions meant that he was unable to work. His brother Basheer and his parents were constantly on the edge having to manage his sugar levels and be prepared for sudden admissions due to infections. Post transplant he is doing well and the whole family is overjoyed to see him lead a normal life. Shakeer D Pancreas and Kidney Transplant Survivor said "Firstly I would like to thank the organ donors family and then the experts who have helped me outlive myself. This year I will be celebrating the festival with a renewed spirit." Dr Anil Kumar Consultant Nephrologist BGS Global Hospitals said "Shakeer had initially come to us for consideration of a kidney transplant. However on assessment it was very clear that given his poor diabetic control a combined pancreas and kidney transplant would offer him the best chance of long term survival. We had extensive discussions with the family about his condition and the surgical procedure. Pancreas transplant is a complex procedure and the surgical slide 2: risks are higher than a kidney transplant alone. The patient and his family considered the options and decided to go ahead on the waitlist for a pancreas transplant." Dr Rajiv Lochan Consultant Organ Transplant Surgeon BGS Global Hospitals said "Shakeer was placed on the waitlist for a combined pancreas and kidney transplant as per the norms of the zonal co-ordination committee of Karnataka ZCCK. Typically the selection criteria for pancreas are very stringent given the possibility of pancreatitis so patients generally have to wait longer for suitable organ matching as compared to those waiting for a kidney alone. Shakeer was on the waiting list for 18 months. Last month we received a call from the ZCCK saying that a suitable donor had been identified. The family members of the brain dead person had agreed to donate their loved ones organs. The pancreas and kidney were found to be a perfect match for Shakeer." Dr Sonal Asthana Consultant Organ Transplant Surgeon said "The operation took around 6-7 hours. We did not remove any diseased organs from the body. The new kidney was placed on the lower left side of the abdomen and connected to the nearby blood vessels and the bladder. The ureter was attached to the bladder. The pancreas was connected to blood vessels on the lower right side of the abdomen. The pancreas and the kidney worked right away and Shakeer did not require any insulin soon after the surgery was completed. He was in the hospital for around 3 weeks and made an uneventful recovery. Shakeer was able to eat sweets for the first time in almost 15 years shortly afterwards." He further adds "India is the diabetes capital of the world. Almost 100000 children develop Type 1 diabetes every year. Although pancreas transplant was first described in 1966 and nearly 2000 are done worldwide every year less than 10 such transplants have been performed in India. This highlights the need for increased awareness on organ donation which would pave the way for many more such successful medical outcomes helping patients with end stage organ failure get a second chance at life." Dr K Ravindranath Chairman Global Hospitals Group said "Global Hospitals Group has redefined organ transplant programme in India by creating accessibility to expertise and advanced infrastructure. Today we are the leaders in organ transplants achieving several milestones and delivering superior clinical outcomes restoring hope of many patients with end stage organ failure. Pancreas transplant is a very complex procedure and we have successfully performed it as we have sustained and established a comprehensive transplant programme with world-class specialists."
