PRESS RELEASE

250 Renal Transplants Conducted at SKIMS


Srinagar 17-2-2018:  The Department of Urology and Kidney Transplant Unit (KTU) SKIMS, has done more than 250 successful kidney transplants till date with satisfying results which are at par with any  other centre in the country with morbidity / mortality within permissible limits.

H.O.D Urology & renowned urologist of the state, Dr. M. Saleem Wani said that Renal transplantation has increased patient survival and it is in this context that Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Soura Srinagar took a lead in human organ transplantation in the state and Kidney Transplantation programme was established in SKIMS in 1999. The Institute was authorized to carry Renal Transplantation in 1999 as per the J&K Transplantation of the Human Organ Act 1997 and is the only centre in the state authorized to do the kidney transplantation. SKIMS being the apex Institution of the state not only accepts patients from the state but also from the neighbouring states of the country, thereby providing an opportunity to the people with such ailments to avail the better quality treatment with lower costs than the corporate hospitals, he explains.

Dr. Wani lauded administration for its continuous support  and said that to start with SKIMS had only two bedded Transplant unit which has been upgraded to 12 bed unit. He hoped that separate Nepro-Urosciences hospital will be established as proposal for same has been submitted to the administration for consideration so that cadaver transplant program can also be started.

There is a huge gap between availability and demand of the organs for the transplantation. The future of solid organ transplantation is the Cadaver transplantation and the public needs to be made aware of the concept of Brain death. Fatal road accidents leading to brain death is on the rise and there is potential for huge Brain dead Donors. The number of fatal road accidents/year in the country is 85000 and on an average there are 8-10 brain dead patients every day in ICUs in major cities, he added.

Dr. Wani insisted that awareness in Medical fraternity and community at large is required for the success of the program. It is awareness programs in the form of Continued Medical Education (CME’s), public meetings, awareness through print & electronic media  which created positive attitude among masses and lead to Husbands donating to Wives, Unmarried sisters donating for their sisters and brothers, Unmarried daughters donating for their fathers, Brothers donating for their sisters, & Pediatric transplant.

Director SKIMS / Ex-officio Secretary to Govt. appreciated the department for running the program successfully and alleviating the problems of poor patients. He said the excellent outcome of the transplant program is the result of untiring efforts of the dedicated and committed team of Transplant Surgeons, Transplant Nephrologists, Transplant Anesthesiologists, Immunologists besides highly trained OT and KTU nursing team.

It is important to mention Kidney failure is a major public health problem worldwide and the Incidence & prevalence is on rise. CKD is a common, harmful & treatable disease. Causes of kidney failure are Diabetes, Hypertension, Glomerulonephritis, Polycystic kidney disease and pain killer abuse.

Organ transplantation saves lives in patients affected by terminal organ failures and improves quality of life. Organ transplantation has gradually taken centre stage in treatment of end stage organ failure and provides excellent results in children and young adults. Solid organ transplantation programme activities have steadily grown in last two decades and is essential for developed and mature health care systems. Life-saving transplants are indispensable to treat patients with kidney, liver, heart or lung end stage diseases. Renal transplantation is procedure of choice & cost-effective strategy for management of end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients and successful renal transplant leads to improvement in quality of life.
