pital successfully transpl娱乐地图from baby into wom

Doctors in Hubei province have successfully transplanted kidneys

from a prematurely born donor baby into a 47-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure.娱乐地图女神会所

The donor weighed only 1.3 kilograms, the lightest kidney donor ever reported, Wuhan Union Hospital said on Wednesday.

娱乐地图The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos

ed with uremia in June last year and transplant surgery performed a month later.

Without the transplant, she would have had to rely on blood dialysis for the rest of her life.娱乐地图女神会所

The kidneys used in the surgery were from a baby born prematurely

娱乐地图, whose parents decided to donate the organs after the infant died, the hospital said.

Following a year of follow-up treatment, the baby’s kidneys, which were between 3 and 4 centimeters long when tran娱乐地图

splanted, have grown to 6.9 cm and 7.6 cm in the patient’s body, closer to the usual size of 10 cm for an adult.

娱乐地图女神会所The two kidneys are functioning normally and Wang’s health has recovered, the hospital said.

Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are

very difficult compared with kidneys donated by adults. Generally, infants that weigh less th娱乐地图

an 5 kg are not considered as sources of organs for transplant surgeries abroad, the hospital said.

娱乐地图女神会所Wang Zhendi, a transplant surgeon in the hospital and the woman’s do

ctor, said the blood vessels and ureter, a tube that carries urine from the kidney to the ur

inary bladder, are very thin in infants’ kidneys. This makes precise surgery very difficult, with higher chances of post-surgery complications. It is also more di

fficult for such kidneys to function in an adult’s body as they are not fully developed.娱乐地图

“The less the weight of the donor, the slower the kidney recovers functioning in the body where it is transplanted,” he said.

Although an adult can survive with just one kidney, usually two ki娱乐地图女神会所

dneys are transplanted from an infant to improve the chances of a healthy outcome, he said.

The success of the surgery means sources for kidney transplant surgeries can be expanded to inclu娱乐地图

de infant donors. This will ease the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of patie

娱乐地图女神会所nts with terminal kidney disease waiting for transplant surgery in China, the hospital said.

In Wuhan Union Hospital alone, more than 500 registered patients wit

h kidney failure are waiting for suitable organs for transplantation, the hospital said.

To achieve the government target of bringing down the

the percentage of adult smokers to 20 percent by 2030, we have a lot of work to do,” he said.

The biggest obstacle to tobacco control in China is the powerful toba

cco industry, which is one of the biggest tax contributors to the government, he said.

Despite an increasing number of cities having local regulations on tobacco control,

national legislation is still lacking, due to causes including influence from the industry, he said.

“Only a few big cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen h
