Anantapur,18th September, 2021 : Kidneys play a vital role in the human body. For various reasons, kidneys might fail to function and only transplanting them would help in such cases. But, this used to happen only in cities. So, people from  towns were hesitant to go to cities  for Kidney transplantations. There are many reasons for this. The patient had to stay in the same place for a long time post-surgery; there was less knowledge about this; the cost was too high, and kidneys were not readily available. But now, KIMS SAVEERA hospital in ANANTAPUR of Rayalaseema has started renal transplantation, said nephrologist and Renal Transplant physician Dr V. BADARINATH and urologist and transplant surgeon Dr. DURGA PRASAD. They spoke about the first kidney transplantation that was successful in their hospital.

 

Mr. BOYA VEERABHADRA, was a photographer from rayadurgam area of anantapur district. He presented to KIMS SAVEERA hospital 6 months ago with pedal edema, nausea and vomitimg. On evaluation he was found to have severe renal dysfunction and was initiated on dialysis under arogyasree scheme. He underwent renal biopsy and was diagnosed to have Ig A nephropathy. He was continued on maintainence dialysis at KIMS SAVEERA under arogyasree. His sister has come forward for donation to ease problems of his brother. After thorough workup, his sister was fit for renal donation and we decided to go ahead with renal transplantation after approvals from police department, revenue department, legal department and authorisation committee.

 

Transplant  team lead by  DR. UMA MAHESHWARA RAO with his team members DR. DURGA PRASAD, DR. BADRINATH, DR. JITENDRA KUMAR and DR. PURNA  along with anaesthesia team,  performed first renal transplantation on September 5 th at KIMS SAVEERA HOSPITAL, under Dr YSR Aarogyasri shceme. There were no complications post surgery. Donor was discharged after 5 days and recipient was discharged after 5 days with stable renal functions. Recipient is freed from coming to dialysis regularly three times a week from a distance of 100 km.

 

DR.V.BADARINATH ( NEPHROLOGIST AND TRANSPLANT PHYSICIAN),  role is very crucial in the entire process of Renal transplantation. It starts right from the identification of the problem. Asserting the severity of disease, searching for a donor from the patient's own family, or going for the cadaver donation, testing for matching of donor's kidney to the recipient, every step is important. The nephrologist needs to check the donor's health too. Before the surgery and post-surgery too, the patient needs to take immunosuppressants, to prevent rejection of new organ. Donor will be back to normal life after 1 week post surgery and they can do all activities after 6 months. Recipient needs to be on regular follow ups post surgery to watch closely how new kidney is functioning in his body and titrating doses of immunosuppressive medications according to kidney function and levels of immunosuppressive agents. They are more prone to infections in initial days of transplant and needs to follow isolation, social distancing, consumption of hygienic home made food, regular hand washing and wearing mask to prevent infections.

 

DR. G. DURGA PRASAD MS; MCH; (NIMS) UROLOGIST, LAPAROSCOPIC AND TRANSPLANT SURGEON,  spoke regarding renal transplantation surgery. Kidney Transplantation surgery is a challenging procedure where we not only transfer the kidney from person to person but also needs precision with utmost surgical expertise. Ischemia time - the time frame between removal of kidney from donor and restoring of blood flow after transplanting in recipient plays a pivotal role in the immediate and long term out come of the patient. Patients on long term dialysis will be immediately free after a successful transplant. Donor should be the prime focus here because with out whom this is not possible. This surgery being the first in entire district will raise hopes for many people who are suffering with chronic renal problems. We will continue this live transplantation programme and extend our efforts further in starting deceased donor renal transplantation under jeevandan in the near future. People of Anantapur and Cuddapah districts will be benifited with this programme.
