First heart transplant in Sri Lanka, a success

Sri Lanka’s first ever heart transplant surgery was successfully performed at Kandy National Hospital on July 07, said health minister Rajitha Senaratne.

A woman, aged 34 years, received the heart of a 24-year-old brain dead youth.

Hospital director Dr. Saman Ratnayake said the dead youth’s two kidneys too, were transplanted to two kidney patients successfully.

The trio are doing well at hospital.
