Kidney patient receives gift of life from country’s oldest donor

PETALING JAYA: A new lease of life for a 29-year-old man after he has received a pair of kidneys from a 74-year-old man, the oldest donor in the country so far.

Health ministry director-general Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah tweeted that the 74-year-old cadaveric donor is the oldest donor in Malaysia.

“The recipient, a 29-year-old man, is doing well without complications after the transplant,” said Dr. Noor Hisham.

This was the second renal transplant performed by a team of surgeons led by Datuk Dr. Rohan Malek Johan at Selayang Hospital.

The same team performed the first transplant five years ago, said Dr Noor Hisham.
