Belgian, HCMC doctors perform city’s 7th liver transplant

In Vietnam Health on December 7, 2009 at 10:24 am

The 16-month-old baby transplanted liver at the hospital with her mother, the donor

Belgian surgeons and doctors at Ho Chi Minh City’s Pediatrics Hospital 2 performed the seventh-ever liver transplant done in the city on a year-old child from District 6 on November 7.

A piece of liver was taken from the girl’s mother for the transplant.

The child, Tang Ngoc My, had undergone a Kasai procedure when she was two months old after being diagnosed with biliary atresia, a condition caused by the blockage or absence of the common bile duct between the liver and small intestine.

But the duct then became infected and she developed cirrhosis. Her condition was reportedly worsening before the latest operation.

She weighed just 7.1 kilograms and doctors said her malnourished state made the surgery riskier.

The hospital did not charge the child’s family the cost of the surgery which normally costs around VND250 million (US$13,500).

In Vietnam Weather on September 11, 2009 at 7:42 am

He said it would move to the Gulf of Tokin on September 11.

On the afternoon of the 10th, the storm lay centered 300 kilometers east-southeast of China’s Hainan Island.

It is moving west-northwest at around 20 kilometers an hour and is forecast to intensify. Coastal provinces from Quang Ninh to Quang Binh will experience strong winds in next few days.

The northern part of the East Sea, including the Hoang Sa (Paracel) Archipelago, has already turned rough.

From September 11 the Gulf of Tokin will experience strong winds of levels six to seven, and areas near the storm’s eye will have level eight winds. The coastal region from Quang Ninh to Nghe An provinces will see similar conditions on September 12.

Mr Tang said the storm would make landfall on Hainan and see its speed reduce to 15 kilometers an hour before reaching northern Vietnam as a tropical low pressure zone bringing heavy rains.

The same day Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Cao Duc Phat said provincial authorities should get fishing boats into safe places and provinces from Quang Ninh to Thanh Hoa should prohibit them from going out to sea.

He said 170,000 hectares of fields with mature rice plus a large area of other paddies in the north are likely to be flooded, and called on local authorities to direct farmers to harvest the mature crop and protect the other fields.

The Ministry of Heath asked its agencies in coastal provinces from Quang Ninh to Binh Dinh September 10 to safeguard health centers from flooding and ensure patients, workers, equipment are safe.

He also ordered health clinics to be ready to provide emergency aid to people affected by rains and floods.

In a dispatch September 10 to central and Central Highlands provinces, Prime Minster Nguyen Tan Dung sent his regrets to families that suffered losses due to floods and landslides caused by a recent tropical low pressure zone.

He asked authorities to quickly search for missing people, treat injured people, dispatch food and water to households still marooned in flooded areas, and help farmers harvest rice.

He also ordered them to help affected families and help stabilize people’s lives and agriculture.

The PM also told them to be fully prepared to deal with heavy rains, floods, and landslides that may be caused by tropical depressions and storms in the next few days, direct fishermen to safety, evacuate people from landslide-prone areas and minimize damage on life and property.
