A young woman from Plovdiv received a kidney after a unique operation…

Two patients got a chance for new kidneys at “Alexandrovska” in Sofia. The donor is a 32-year-old man who suffered brain death due to a cerebral hemorrhage.

The kidneys were transplanted to a man and a woman with chronic kidney failure at Aleksandrovsk Hospital, selected with the highest percentage of organ compatibility with the donor from a total of 6 invited for evaluation from the waiting list, the hospital announced.

The man is 55 years old from the city of Pleven and has been on hemodialysis treatment since 2017, and the woman is 29 years old from the Plovdiv region, on hemodialysis treatment since 2018.

According to the head of the Urology Clinic, Prof. Marin Georgiev, the transplants were difficult, lasted longer than expected, with the intervention of a vascular surgeon, as the kidneys had rare anatomical damage – one had 3 arteries, and the other with 2 veins and 2 arteries.

After the intervention, the transplanted are recuperating in the Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Clinic of the hospital. Their condition is stable, with very good vital signs.

The team of UMBAL “Alexandrovska” expresses sincere condolences to the relatives of the deceased man and admires their humane decision to donate his organs to save other human lives in the most difficult moment for them.
