R. Meenakshi Sundaram (49), a businessman of Annanagar, Madurai, recently suffered a serious head injury in an accident at Pudukottai. He underwent initial treatment at Pudukottai Government Hospital and further treatment at a private hospital in Trichy, where he was declared to be brain dead. He was then brought to MMHRC, where the neurosurgeons confirmed his condition. After explaining the possibility and importance of cadaver transplant to his family, the team led by Dr. K. Sampathkumar, Sr. Nephrologist and Dr. TR Murali, Sr. Urologist, initiated the organ transplant. While one kidney was transplanted to a patient at MMHRC, the other kidney, liver, heart and cornea were transplanted to save 7 lives.
