A 32-year-old patient suffering from a lung disorder along with coronavirus, underwent a rare double lung transplant at the KIMS Hospital. The recovered patient was released on Friday after the successful surgery.

The patient, a Rizwan aka Monu, hailed from Chandigarh and was suffering from sarcoidosis that affected his lungs significantly, leading to fibrosis of the lungs. The condition of the patient deteriorated rapidly.

A double lung transplant was the only option available before the doctors at KIMS Hospital. The situation worsened when the patient contracted coronavirus while awaiting for the double lung transplant. This worsened matters as it increased his oxygen requirement from 15 liters/minute to 50 liters/minute over the past 8 weeks.

“Fortunately, a match to his lungs was found in a person declared brain dead in Kolkata and the harvested lungs were airlifted to Hyderabad to save the life of the patient,” said a Dr. Sandeep Attawar, who is a veteran surgeon with over 24 years of experience.

The procedure was complex and only a timely transplant of lungs could save the patient.

Doctor will now monitor Monu for at least 6 weeks after his discharge under a bio bubble environment and careful drug control.
