“I think Apollo has submitted everything. The matter is sub-judice. So I can’t make any further comment,” she stated. 
The press meet was held to shed light on Apollo Hospitals performing a simultaneous cadaveric pancreas and live-donor kidney transplant - a ‘first of its kind’ in Asia – that gave a new lease of life to a 38-year-old patient, Hitesh from New Delhi.
The pancreas was harvested from a suitable cadaveric donor from Vellore and simultaneously, the kidney was donated by Hitesh’s wife Supriya. The kidney from the same cadaver donor from Vellore was allocated to another patient at Apollo.
While most simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplants are performed from organs harvested from the same cadaveric donor, this case highlighted the need to adapt to other strategies to help patients when the allocation rules for the kidney do not favour diabetics on dialysis.
