Nida Khan, Indore: Two green corridors were set up in Indore on Tuesday to transport heart, liver, kidneys, eyes and
skin of a 30-year-old man declared brain dead after a road accident in the city on Monday evening.
Heart and liver of the donor, Ramgopal Soni, were transported from Choithram Hospital, where he died, to the airport for airlifting to New Delhi.
It was reported that the liver could not be transplanted as it had some infection while the heart was successfully transplanted to a 43-year-old female in AIIMS, New Delhi.
The green corridor was created at 11:30am and the ambulance carrying the organs reached the airport within 10 minutes. Normally, it would have taken at least half -an-hour to cover the distance.
Meanwhile, at 12:05pm, another green corridor was formed for the seamless-movement of an ambulance carrying a kidney of the deceased to city’s Greater Kailash Hospital. The organ was to be transplanted to a female recipient in the city.
Another kidney of the deceased was sent to city’s Choithram Hospital for transplantation.
Ramgopal Soni, whose organs were harvested, was declared brain dead by the doctors on Monday afternoon. Soni originally hailed from Unnav, Uttar Pradesh. He was working in Indore. “After the patient was declared brain dead, we realised none of his close relatives lives in the city. After his father arrived around 8pm, we started counseling him,” said Dr Sanjay Dixit, vice dean of the MGM medical college and member of the Indore Organ Donation Society.
Divisional commissioner Sanjay Dubey, quoting doctors who harvested the organs, said they did not face any major problem in carrying out the operation as both the green corridors functioned smoothly.
In the past one year, ten green corridors were formed in the city for smooth transportation of organs.
“It was our tenth feat and we have grown in confidence with the entire procedure.
