Pak boy undergoes liver, kidney transplant in Noida
Islamabad: A nine-year-old Pakistani boy underwent successful liver and kidney transplant surgery at Fortis Hospital in Noida.
Amaar Asif was suffering from primary hyperoxaluria (excessive urinary excretion of oxalate) which leads to the formation of kidney stones.
The child was in pain for the last five years. Over the period, he became extremely weak and unable to even do routine activities. As a result, his education also suffered.
The kidney was donated by Amaar’s paternal uncle while the liver donor was his maternal uncle.
The treatment was sponsored by the Pakistani government.
