The Hospital of the Medical School of USP celebrates, on Friday (26), the success of liver transplantation in children number 500 held in the unit. The patient is the youngest baby ever transplanted in HC, with only two months to live.

A ceremony will be held in the amphitheater of the Institute and aims to honor transplant patients and their families, and the relatives of donors and multidisciplinary teams involved.

The staff of the Department of Pediatric Surgery is also a specialist in surgery in adults. For surgeries in children, most often, the liver of the father or mother is removed and transplanted into the patient almost instantly.

The operation is complex, mainly because it conducted due to serious illness. You need to take immunosuppressants before, which decreases to zero immunity, says the head of service, Uenis Tannuri.

The first transplant was performed in September 1989 and since then the service has been improving, serving all over Brazil and also to other countries in South America

Last year there were 60 liver transplants performed in children in São Paulo state, including 11 at the Hospital. In 2012 through October, were 42 procedures, nine of HC.
