"At the end of last week, a kidney was transplanted posthumously for the first time at the Center of Nephrology and Dialysis of Kyiv Regional Council. It was given to a 40-year-old Kyiv citizen whose kidneys completely lost their function in 2016. The patient had been on a "waiting list" for a new organ for two months," Povoroznyk wrote.

It is reported that the donor for the recipient was a 57-year-old man who was admitted to the Kyiv Regional Hospital with a diagnosis of acute hemorrhagic stroke. Unfortunately, all attempts to save him were useless. The medical council diagnosed the patient with brain death, and his wife agreed to donate.

The surgery began late in the evening on May 6 and lasted three hours. The donor’s kidney worked immediately on the surgery table.

"After such a complex surgery, it is difficult to make predictions, because the patient is still waiting for a long recovery process. However, today we can say that the patient's condition is stable," Povoroznyk added.
