“Her application will be submitted to the office on Friday , and the procedure to grant 15 days of emergency parole will start soon,” a source said.
Natarajan gets 19-yr-old brain-dead’s liver, kidney
Doctors at Gleneagles Global Health City in Chennai have done a dual organ transplant on M Natarajan, husband of V K Sasikala.
The 74-year-old chronic liver disease patient was stable after the seven-and-a-half hour kidney and liver transplant surgery that began late on Tuesday
night, said a senior doctor at the Institute of Liver Diseases and Transplantation.
The organs came from Karthik N, 19, a daily wage earner admitted to a government hospital in Thanjavur with severe head injuries. He was flown to Chennai by a private air ambulance.
Gleneagles Global Health City said: “Against medical advice, the family decided to move him to a private hospital for second opinion and specialised care.
The family chose to transfer him to Glenegales Global Hospitals in Chennai for further specialised care. The patient was seen by the neurological and trauma
team and provided further treatment at the centre. Despite treatment, he succumbed to injuries and was pronounced brain-dead on Tuesday,” a hospital communique said.
The hospital did not name the recipient, but said the liver and a kidney went to a 74-year-old patient in Tamil Nadu.
