2-year-old Omani gets liver transplant

The Hindu : Cities / Chennai : 2-year-old Omani gets liver transplant

Only two months ago, Yasmin was not the same. Diagnosed with Hepatitis A infection that led to acute liver failure, the child suffered hepatic coma and was put on ventilator support at a hospital in Oman. Doctors referred her to Global Hospital in Chennai and 15 days later, she was brought to the city by air ambulance. Doctors conducted the necessary tests and found that just two per cent of her liver cells were functional.
