  6. want teo he starting Page 7 Nation: Three of four hearts harvested were given to foreigners. at thh .Director of National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (NOTTO), has flagged the organ transplant racket in Tamil Nadu in a message on a WhatsApp group set up for the express purpose of organ allocation Going by the rule book, allocation of organs to recipients on the waiting list is based on criteria that include the date of registration and the medical condition of the recipient. e.The wealth, race or gender of a person on the waiting list has no bearing on when and whether a person will receive a donated organ. The Transplantation of Human Organs Act of 1994 makes it illegal to buy or sell human organs in India The question is how will TRANSTAN Member Secretary decide whether they asked Indian patients, how many were found fit. There was a meeting of all the stakeholders to decided on clear-cut guidelines in the case of allocating organs to foreigners as three of four hearts in Chennai were given to foreigners Recommendation: TRANSTAN form a committee to look into claims made by private hospitals to the effect that Indian patients developed fever or cold at the last minute and hence became ineligible for the transplant. e ar k h ent . tis that


  7. want teo he starting Health is a State subject, States should implement the guidelines recommended by Director of National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation States have to take strong action, they are the appropriate authority to take steps to unravel the truth. at thh . In 2017 alone, foreigners were the recipients in 31 heart transplants, 32 lung transplants, and 32 heart and lung transplants. During the same year, Indians were the recipients in 91 heart transplants, P75 lung transplants, and 6 heart and lung transplants. he. The wait list of active patients as on June 2018 had 53 foreigners, it had 5,310 Indians. re Kerala CM intervenes There are also allegations doing the rounds that organs were harvested without the consent of a brain-dead patient's family to meet the needs of foreign nationals. Last month, Kerala Chief Minister wrote to his Tamil Nadu counterpart seeking an investigation into an allegation levelled by a family in Kerala that a private hospital had retrieved organs from an accident victim without consent. e ar k h ent .The heart taken from the brain-dead patient, was shifted to Chennai and given to an Ukrainian. The lungs were given to an Israeli national An in-depth investigation headed by a Deputy Superintendent of Police is on to unravel the circumstances that led to the harvesting of organs from the victim and how they were allocated to the foreign patients. tis


  8. want teo he starting Official shifted at thh As the probe was gathering momentum, the Health Department relieved the Member Secretary of TRANSTAN. The official said he chose to resign from the post due to "personal reasons." .Asked about allegations that hearts retrieved from Indian patients were given to foreign nationals, Member Secretary said the allocations were made strictly according to rules. They allowed the organ to go to international patients only after the private hospitals confirmed on hethe Whats App group that there were no Indian patients eligible for the transplantation. Though some hospitals initially proposed the hearts for Indian patients, they made a change at the last minute, saying that the patient had developed fever or that there were logistical difficulties, and hence the organ would be given to a foreigner. They have to go by what the transplant surgeon of that hospital says, there is no mechanism to ascertain the genuineness of the claim made by doctors that Indian patients suddenly developed fever or cold. At a high-level meeting on allocation of organs to foreign nationals held in New Delhi, it was observed that "the cost of a transplant, especially a heart transplant, in Chennai is so high that only foreigners are able to afford (it) e ar k h ent .It was decided that strategies for maximising utilisation of organs by Indian recipients should be worked out by State governments and post-transplant data on follow-ups and outcome of transplants for every recipient be compiled. tis


  9. want teo he starting Page 7 Nation: No Indian should be denied .Member Secretary, Transplant Authority of Tamil Nadu (TRANSTAN), says one of her immediate at thh challenges is to bring about transparency in the organ transplantation programme to ensure that all Indian patients deserving an organ get it. Challenges to overcome in TRANSTAN: The immediate challenge is to make this organisation transparent so that no Indian patient is he overlooked in allocation of organs. If the problem of transparency is addressed in the system then probably other things will just fall in place. All Indian patients deserving organs should get it. The NOTTO Director had recently put a note in the official organ allocation WhatsApp group expressing serious concern over foreign patients getting organs bypassing Indians. TRANSTAN was initially operating by sending SMS alerts to hospitals on the availability of organs of brain-dead patients. Recently a WhatsApp group was started with all stakeholders as members, ur which brought about some transparency. e ar k h ent tis that


  10. want teo he starting The Whats App group has definitely improved the level of transparency Process involved in allocating an organ to a hospital: . at thh patient is declared brain-dead in a hospital in Chennai or outside, what happens next? Once a patient is certified brain-dead, TRANSTAN gets an alert that there is a potential donor. After that, we send out an alert in the WhatsApp group to all hospitals. First they make sure that no Indian patient is overlooked. Hospitals should give us a decline hemessage if they don't want to take the organ. If a foreigner is being given an organ by overlooking Indians, then the transplant surgeon has to give valid reasons why they are not being considered Even if there are no Indian patients, we ask other States. After notifying National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation, we make another check and allocate the organ to the international patient. When a hospital claims that Indian patients in its wait list are not fit for the transplant and seek the organ for a foreigner, do you have a mechanism to verify the genuineness of their claim? They can't say in one line that they are declining the organ for Indian patients. It has to be turned down case-by-case with a valid reason. There is a possibility that a false claim can be made to give preference to a foreign national. There is no manpower to check all that, they need somebody to go to that hospital and check TRANSTAN has only seven transplant coordinators working for the whole of Tamil Nadu who are working on a contract basis. This is another challenge. e ar ent . tis
