Kauvery Hospital Successfully Performs Kidney Transplant on a 35-year-old WomanA 35-year-old woman, who recovered from COVID-19 recently, underwent a renal transplant at Kauvery Hospital in Chennai. Her mother, who donated her kidney, also recovered from the infection recently. The Madurai-based patient had come to Chennai for management of chronic kidney failure. The patient was diagnosed with IgA nephropathy, which led to a deterioration in kidney function, necessitating immediate transplant. The patient’s mother offered to donate a kidney.

The hospital’s chief nephrologist, R. Balasubramaniyam, said just as the investigation to check for compatibility and eligibility was completed, the women developed COVID-19 symptoms. Their CT scans were normal and hence, they were placed under home quarantine. After recovery, they were tested for antibody levels, which indicated “they were well-protected from further COVID-19. We then went ahead with the transplant procedure,” Dr. Balasubramaniyam said.

The transplant was successful. The donor was discharged three days after the procedure and the patient was discharged after six days.

Heart disease is increasing at an alarming rate in India, and unfortunately, awareness levels about the same are appallingly low. Dr K.P. Suresh Kumar, chief cardiologist at Kauvery Hospital, Chennai, says, “India is the diabetes capital of the world. It is the same with hypertension (high blood pressure). Every third adult in India is hypertensive. And only 33 per cent of those who are hypertensive are aware of it.” And to make matters worse, he adds, “Again, of that group, only 33 per cent get treatment, and of that 33 per cent, only one-third of them have it under control.” Indians, especially south Indians, are more vulnerable to coronary heart disease at a young age and in middle age, he says.

These are very worrying statistics. Also, 66 per cent of diabetics have hypertension, while almost 50 per cent of people with high blood pressure have diabetes. Hypertension is one of the prime contributors to heart disease. “A huge volume of patients remains untreated, and they all develop complications of hypertension,” says the doctor.
