Abu Dhabi Medical Team Achieves First Deceased Donor Liver Transplant

Fatima's journey at Burjeel Medical City (BMC) in Abu Dhabi reflects a remarkable tale of resilience and hope. Diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis, a condition where the body's immune system turns against liver cells, Fatima faced an arduous battle against liver cirrhosis and later, liver cancer. In 2022, her condition escalated to decompensated liver cirrhosis, presenting a formidable challenge to her health.

A year later, Fatima's health took another downturn as she was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma, a form of liver cancer. Seeking expert medical guidance, Fatima turned to Burjeel Medical City, where she received comprehensive care under the supervision of Dr. Rehan Saif, Director of the Burjeel Abdominal Multi-Organ Transplant Programme.

Given the severity of Fatima's condition, a liver transplant emerged as the only viable option. However, the path to transplantation was fraught with challenges. Fatima underwent extensive evaluations and was placed on the waitlist for a deceased donor liver transplant through the Emirates Organ Transplant Centre and Ministry of Health and Prevention. Despite being called for transplant three times previously, suitable donor matches remained elusive.

Finally, a ray of hope emerged when Burjeel Medical City was enrolled in the Deceased Donor Liver Transplant Program. Following meticulous coordination and assessment, Fatima received the life-changing opportunity she had been waiting for. A deceased 23-year-old donor provided the gift of life through a successful liver transplant surgery at BMC.

The procedure, led by a dedicated medical team comprising surgeons, nurses, rehabilitation specialists, and administrative staff, marked a significant milestone in Fatima's journey to recovery. Dr. Rehan Saif described the surgery as immensely challenging but expressed optimism about Fatima's progress, emphasizing her remarkable resilience and the healthy functioning of the transplanted liver.

The success of Fatima's liver transplant underscores the UAE's commitment to delivering advanced healthcare services to its residents. Dr. Rehan highlighted BMC's dedication to expanding its transplant program to encompass both adult and pediatric liver diseases, further enhancing healthcare accessibility and quality in the region.

Fatima's story serves as a testament to the power of medical expertise, teamwork, and unwavering perseverance in overcoming formidable health challenges. Her journey at Burjeel Medical City embodies the ethos of resilience and hope, offering inspiration to individuals facing similar medical adversities across the UAE and beyond.
