  • Chahal Patwari – The Youngest Heart Transplantee In Karnataka

    Hailing from Kolkata in West Bengal, Master Chahal Patwari, the 4-year-old heart transplant recipient was suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy since he as of the age two. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart's ability to pump blood is decreased because the heart's main pumping chamber, the left ventricle, is enlarged and weakened.

    Although the young boy was fighting furiously against the condition, the treatment only deteriorated his condition. The disease had weakened his heart's ability to pump and he was not in a condition to even eat or play. As the child had reached end-stage heart failure, the parents were hastily looking for a helping hand as end-stage heart failure is one of the conditions mired with high mortality. Around 1/4th of the children who suffer from end-stage heart failure die within 6 months and a majority of them do not survive beyond two years of age.

  • Narayana Health City Joined Hands With Jeevasarthakathe & Bangalore City Traffic Police

    The pediatric team under the aegis of Dr Shashiraj Subramanya, Consultant Pediatric Cardiologist & Heart Transplant Physician, Narayana Health City, did a thorough evaluation of the child and discovered that transplant was the only option and advised the family to register with Jeevasarthakathe - the apex body of Govt of Karnataka for Deceased Donor Organ Transplants.

    Dr B R Ravikanthe Gowda, Additional Commissioner (Traffic), Bangalore City Traffic Police, who was present at the press conference was immensely and remarkably thanked for the humanitarian actions and support offered by the traffic police, to get the transplant from Aster CMI Hospital, Hebbal to Narayana Health City located in Bommasandra.

    A 45 year old man who had a suffered from brain haemorrhage and was admitted at Aster CMI Hospital, Hebbal, Bangalore acted as the saviour for the young boy and was declared brain dead on 21 December and his family consented for organ donation.

    The Hospital Applauded The Bangalore Traffic Police's Timely Effort

    Sharing his contentment of being a part of a lifesaving procedure, Dr B R Ravikanthe Gowda, Additional Commissioner (Traffic), Bangalore City Traffic Police, said, "It gives me immense pleasure to be a part of such a lifesaving mission. We are glad that we have been instrumental in saving the life of this young boy" - a commendable action, especially considering the peak hours of traffic in Bangalore City.

  • Importance Of Organ Donation Was Pointed Out

    Dr Kishore Phadke, Convenor, Jeevasarthakathe said, "While there is an increase in the number of people coming forward to donate organs, it is still far from desirable. Over the last few years, the heart transplant has grown 2 times. Last year we were able to provide support to 30+ heart transplants in the city. There is a growing need for creating awareness and dispelling the myths around organ donation."

    Expressing his joy, Mr Kamal Patwari, patient's father, said, "In the time of darkness, Narayana Health City came as a ray of hope in our lives. Master Chahal Patwari is our only child and we had lost hope till we came to Narayana Health City. We are not only thankful to the entire team of Narayana Health City but also deeply indebted to the donor's family for saving our child."

    Dr B R Ravikanthe Gowda, Additional Commissioner (Traffic), Bengaluru City Traffic Police, Dr Kishore Phadke, Convenor, Jeevasarthakathe, Dr Varun Shetty, Consultant-Cardiothoracic Surgery & Heart Transplant, Narayana Health City and Dr Thiruthani Kumaran, Consultant-Cardiothoracic Surgery & Heart Transplant, Narayana Health City were present at the event wherein the case study was elaborated.

Narayana Health City, Bangalore is one of the best transplant centres in the country with an active transplant program. The paediatric cardiology department of Narayana Health City has brought a ray of hope to children suffering from end-stage heart failure by successfully performing a heart transplant surgery on a child as young as 4 years of age - accoladed as being Karnataka's youngest heart transplant.
