Karachi April 25:  Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) has carried out three living-related successful liver transplants last week under the supervision of Iranian doctors, Shiite News has learned.

The recipients, all children, are now out of the intensive care unit and are making good progress. The donors have also done very well.

This is the first time that Pakistan, in association with Iranian doctors, have carried out such kinds of liver transplantation.

The successful surgical procedure was performed by a team of SIUT surgeons along with a visiting team from the Shiraz Organ Transplant Centre, Iran, which is regarded as one of the largest of its kind in the region.

Mohammad Bilal, aged 7, received liver from his father Mohammad Iqbal, 40. Similarly Ahsan Aslam, a 10 year old resident of Usmanabad received an organ from his mother, Kishwar Aslam, 35. Ahsan Ali Haider, aged 5, who also comes from Usmanabad was the third patient whose mother Nazia Ali Haider, gave a part of her liver.

These patients have received care under the traditional SIUT model where all treatment is provided free of cost. Thus the entire surgical procedure and post-operation care caused no economic hardship on the three families.

Dr Malek Al Husaini who led the Iranian team is the head of Shiraz Transplant Centre and an immediate past President of the Middle East Society of Organ Transplantation.
