Kolhapur – Pune Green Corridor Facilitates Liver Transplant

A green corridor was created on May 5 between Aster Adhar Hospital Kolhapur to Jupiter Hospital Pune to save the life of a 60-year-old patient suffering from the end stages of liver disease. The distance was covered in less than three hours with the help of the Zonal Transplant Coordination Committee (ZTCC) and traffic police; it usually takes Six hours.
The traffic team, led by Mr. Vishwas Nagare Patil, IGP Kolhapur and Mr. Ashok Morale, DCP Pune. And more than 100 policemen created the green corridor by stopping the traffic and allowing free and continue passage to the vehicle transporting the liver.
The liver was harvested in Kolhapur at noon and was in Baner Pune here by 7.30 pm. The 33-year-old donor was declared brain dead on May4 after the road accident on 30th April. His family volunteered to donate his organs, which gave new life to a patient from Pune. The patient donated three organs, heart to Mumbai, Liver to Pune, 1 kidney in Kolhapur and 2nd kidney to Solapur. The liver transplant was performed by a team of surgeons headed by Dr. Sharan Narute, Jupiter Hospital, Baner.
Dr. Sharan Narute, Liver Transplant Surgeon of Jupiter Hospitals said, “The decision by brain dead patient’s family to donate his liver to a needy patient is also worth appreciating. It is very important to note that, through organ donation one man can give a new lease of life to another man. Jupiter Hospital is trying its level best to increase awareness about organ donation.”
Dr. Sunil Rao, Chief Operating Officer, Jupiter Hospitals Baner said, “Society will get benefited if more people like this come forward for organ donation”.
The patient had undergone a living donor liver transplantation 1 month back for chronic liver disease due to fatty liver. Patient had recurrent hospital admissions because of gastrointestinal bleeds, his daughter had donated a part of the liver the patient had a smooth recovery and was discharged home. However, a month later, there was sudden deterioration in the liver function because of poor supply, we appealed to ZTCC pune for super urgent listing and they agreed for as it was the only life saving measure.
Usually it takes 6 hours to travel from Nashik to Pune, thanks to the green corridor created by traffic police this transportation was achieved in just 3 hours. We thank Mr. Vishwas Nagare Patil, IGP Kolhapur, Mr. Ashok Morale, DCP Pune, and Pune and Kolhapur traffic control team, for creating this green corridor. Also role of Dr Somnath Chatterjee and Dr Sharan Narute liver transplant team, Ms. Aarti Gokhale, ZTCC Central Coordinator and Mr. Sagar Kakad, coordinator Jupiter Hospital, Baner was very instrumental in coordinating the entire green corridor.
