On the one hand, the number of kidney patients in the country is growing at a very fast pace. At the same time, even after transplanting the kidney, the patient is not able to rest. The reason behind this is that with the implant, attacking many deadly viruses in the patient's body.
Due to this infection, the life of the patients is going up. This is the reason why AIIMS, the country's largest medical institute, has already considered these challenges and has already started to include the difficulties after transplantation in the treatment of the patient.
Doctors say that people are already aware. Monitor kidney disease disorders so that chronic kidney disease does not reach the heart. On Wednesday, on the eve of World Kidney Day, important information was shared in the program organized at AIIMS.
Dr. SK Agrawal, Head of Nephrology Department of AIIMS, says that after transplant the patient gets the CNV and BK virus. Due to this transplantation, the patient's life remains surrounded by infection. Therefore, it is not right to claim full relief for these patients even after transplantation.
AIIMS has focused on nephropathy after research. Hepatitis C, B and transplant transfusions are already being treated by the doctor in meditation. At this time there are also some patients who have had to transplant two to three times in AIIMS.
There is also a patient who had transplanted 40 years ago in AIIMS. Doctors believe that AIIMS has done many research in relation to post-implant conditions. After their results, AIIMS further strengthened the treatment process.
Most transplant in private hospitals
Dr. SK Agarwal said that kidney transplantation specialists are very few in the country but more than 6000 transplants are being done annually. 80% transplants are being done in private hospitals. More than 50 per cent of these cases are undergoing infection after transplantation. It is feared that this figure of infected patients can be even more, but nearly half of the private hospitals are transplanted to foreign nationals. It is because of transplantation in India and cheaper than the countries. After the transplant, these citizens return to their country. They are not monitored later.
