    SUCCESSIVE DEATHS OF LIVER TRANSPLANT PATIENTS AT SHAIKH ZAYED HOSPITAL, LAHORE – INCOMPETENCE OR CRIMINAL MALPRACTICE?

    Two live donor liver transplant operations were done entirely by Dr. Subhash Gupta and his team who were flown in specially to perform these operations – whereabouts of these patients and the outcome unknown.

    Two more living donor liver transplants were done by the local shaikh zayed hospital, lahore surgeons. Both died of serious surgical complications within a few days while still in the shaikh zayed ICU. One of the live donors, a young girl, had a serious injury to her liver during the donor operation and may require a liver transplant operation herself if she can afford to go to India for this very expensive and major operation.

    Shaikh Zayed Hospital Liver Transplant Surgeons have no experience or training in Living Donor Liver Transplantation. This fact was pointed out by Dr. Subhash Gupta before he left Lahore. He had advised that these local surgeons should not perform liver transplants independently These were the first operations that these surgeons ever performed in their lives. Had the families of these two patients been told about this fact, they would never have consented to these operations.

    All this information has been concealed from the press and the public – and also from Dr. Gupta.
