Leito do Centro Estadual de Transplantes

The government today inaugurated Fluminense (21) a central state of liver and kidney transplants. The unit, which works in St. Francis Hospital in Tijuca, in the north of the city, is the first state public health oriented transplants. The prediction is carried out, in the first year of operation, 200 surgeries and 100 kidneys liver.

With the 300 surgeries, the device must meet the demand that was once directed to the Federal Hospital Bonsucesso, whose transplant service was halted in December last year. Some of the patients who were being monitored by federal unit will be met by the central state. Doctors Bonsucesso also integrate the new team.

According to Lucio Pacheco, one of the coordinators of the new center, the idea is to expand the range of services offering, including pancreas transplants. Over the past two years, organ donation in the state has increased greatly, but the rigging of hospitals for transplants did not. So the government created this center with the capacity to absorb all patients who need transplants in the state, he said.

The doctor said the transplant centers specialize in Rio was not able to absorb the donated organs and many were being taken to other states.
