NEW DELHI: Two men, bound by a similar plight, underwent successful kidney transplants after their wives donated their kidneys to each other’s husband at a private hospital.

S B Ram (61) who worked with SAIL, and Sant Ram (58), an employee of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), had been on dialysis for two years. They ran from pillar to post in search of a kidney donor, but both failed the compatibility test within their respective families. Then, two completely unknown families came together and gave each other a new lease of life due to an active organ registry maintained by B L Kapur Super Specialty Hospital.

A dedicated team of specialists four transplant surgeons, two nephrologists and four anaesthetists conducted a 10-hour-long swap kidney transplant surgery, also known as paired donation transplant.

“Both patients had high sugar levels. A week before surgery, one patient developed multiple abscesses and boils, which had to be drained out. This delayed the transplant operation,” said Dr Sunil Prakash, senior consultant and director of nephrology at the hospital.
