One and a Half Year Old Suffering from a Rare Congenital Liver Condition Gets Her Life Back at Jaypee Hospital

  • Hailing from Iraq, a year and a half old Fatima suffered from a rare congenital hepatic fibrosis.
  • Her family visited senior consultant of the Liver Transplant Department at Jaypee Hospital, Dr. Abhideep Chaudhary.
  • According to Dr. Chaudhary, a hyper-reduced left lateral liver graft surgery was performed to cure the child's condition.
  • Although her mother, Hannah, was found out to be a suitable donor, the organ's donated portion had to be reduced as Fatima's body could not support the left lobe of her mother's liver. 
  • The donated portion of the liver, therefore, was not only dissected but, before the transplant, its thickness had to be reduced as well.
  • Dr. Chaudhary also added that apart from the child's tender age that posed to be a challenge, one of her cardiac arteries that provide blood to the lungs was underdeveloped which would make it difficult for her to let go of the ventilator support after the transplant. 
  • But, fortunately, not only the surgery has been successful but both the patient and the donor has shown excellent prognosis and will soon be fit enough to fly back to their home country.
