LAHORE: Second successful transplant of liver was conducted at Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute (PKLI) in Lahore on Saturday.
Punjab Health Minister Yasmeen Rashid expressed contentment over the second successful operation of the newly-established institution. She told that the liver donor and the patient both were in good state.
Dr. Faisal Dar was the surgeon who conducted the operation, she said.
Dr. Yaseem lauded the doctors and rest of the operation team on successful transplantation.
She dubbed the development as a promising news for Pakistani public, adding that the patients, seeking liver transplant, will not have to spend millions in foreign hospitals as PKLI will serve them now.
First successful liver transplant was conducted on March 9 at PKLI.
The autonomy of PKLI & Research Centre has ended after its control was handed over to the provincial government.
After passage of a bill by the Punjab Assembly, the board of trustees of the 820-bed PKLI was dissolved.
Under the new set-up in future, the Punjab government will run PKLI by a board of governors (BoG) like that of Jinnah Hospital, Services Hospital and other public sector hospitals.
Lately, the Supreme Court in February had dissolved the managing body of Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute in a suo moto case pertaining to misappropriation and irregularities of funds.
