According to Geo News, KPLI chief Dr Faisal Saud Dar said that a four-member team from Cleveland Clinic from Abu Dhabi also came to Pakistan. According to Dr Faisal Saud Dar, two Pakistani patients were saved by posthumous organ donation. Dr. Faisal Saud said that Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates are trying to increase the trend of post-mortem organ donation.

Dr. Faisal Saud Dar said that both kidney and liver transplant patients are healthy. On the other hand, addressing a press conference in Lahore, Provincial Health Minister Dr Yasmeen Rashid said that it was the first time in PKLI Hospital that parents donated baby organs on a ventilator.

Dr. Yasmeen Rashid said that a young man had an accident in Abu Dhabi a month ago today. "The young man was on the first ventilator and he was brain dead. The parents decided to donate the baby's kidney and liver."

The child's parents had expressed their desire for the donation to go to Pakistan. It's the first time such a donation has been made by a parent. The health minister said that out of the donated organs, one patient received a liver and another a kidney, while another kidney was given to a patient in Abu Dhabi.

According to him, kidney and liver transplant donation has never happened before. Dr Yasmeen Rashid said he was grateful to the parents who donated the child's liver and kidneys. Dr. Yasmeen Rashid said that successful operations are being performed in PKLI Hospital and so far 140 liver transplants and 58000 dialysis have been performed in PKLI. He said that in 2022, PKLI will start bone marrow transplant service in the hospital.
