An urgent night meeting, deploying a "mighty" team to Quang Ninh to retrieve organs, with constant movement that calculate every minute and second... These are what Hue Central Hospital implemented in the three cross-Viet organ transplant operations.

Although organ transplantation at Hue Central Hospital has become routine with over 1,800 cases; however, each transplant presents unique disease with challenges the expert team must face. One heart-transplant patient experienced cardiac arrest twice, having severe heart failure with an ejection fraction (EF) of only 18%. A pediatric liver-transplant recipient had liver fibrosis due to biliary atresia and was unresponsive to treatment. Alongside the liver transplant team from Military Central Hospital 108, led by Associate Professor Le Van Thanh, the liver transplant operation for the pediatric patient was successfully carried out for the first time.

After moments filled with uncertainty, challenges, overcoming the pressures of space and time, three organ transplant patients are gradually recovering and continue to be monitored and cared for.

Let's review with Thua Thien Hue Online the "rebirth" journey for patients with organ failure teetering on the brink of life and death:

Proud of Vietnam’s national name

“Vietnam’s national name is the invaluable spiritual and sacred asset of the Vietnamese people; it is the pride of every citizen of Vietnam. From the depths of our consciousness, I am proud to be Vietnamese," Duong Phuoc Thu, a researcher in Hue, shared on the occasion of the 220th anniversary of Vietnam’s national name.

After the complete liberation of the South, the country was unified, Thua Thien Hue remained a locality bearing many scars of war; the lives of the people were extremely difficult; many buildings, architectures were desolate and in ruins. But it is also from here that the Ancient Capital is not alone on its journey of revival from desolation and gradually developing in a sustainable manner, with the goal of striving to become a centrally-governed city with its own unique strengths.
