Doctors perform a lung transplant operation at Vietnam-Germany Hospital

The operations which have taken place over the previous 13 days include three cases of heart, four cases of liver, and 16 cases of kidney failures, of which 15 organs were taken from brain dead donors.

Each of the surgeries achieved positive results, which serves to prove the capability of medical experts and doctors from Vietnam-Germany Hospital in the field of organ transplants.

The cardiovascular and thoracic centre performed consecutive heart transplants on September 11-12 for the first time ever.

The first person to be operated on was a 33-year-old patient from Thanh Hoa province who had been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy five years previously.

The other case involved a 52-year-old patient in Thanh Hoa who was suffering from cardiomyopathy for several years and received an organ from a brain-dead donor during the operation. The procedures took doctors six hours and 15 hours, respectively, in order to perform the life-saving surgeries.

Vietnam-Germany Hospital is the leading medical facility in the country for conducting multi-organ transplant operations. In addition to performing complicated organ transplants, it also supports other medical facilities and contributes to saving the lives of many patients through the use of modern technology.
