Sandro’s surgery ended succesfully
After five hours, Sandro’s surgery ended successfully. “The organs are functioning properly in his body,” said Dr. Miguel Nicolas. Anyway, there are 72 hours of risk and no less than 40 blood donors will be needed.
“The organs are working properly. The surgical team worked for five hours to remove diseased organs and implant the donated ones. We must wait 72 hours, which is key,” said director Miguel Nicolas.
According to sources, the heart beats very strongly, which is considered very encouraging. Likewise, the lungs are functioning correctly.
He also said that there “could be usual complications in the recovery process”. “Momentarily it is important to know that he’s stable, with a very good response of his organs,” added the professional.
The Hospital Italiano’s director added that the donor was 22 years old. He also said that they would deliver two medical reports on the artists evolution. The doctors say that the following 72 hours after the surgery are crucial to determine his evolution and his adaptation to the transplanted organs.
Sandro arrived this morning in Mendoza, aboard an air ambulance that took him to undergo the heart-lung transplant that had him among INCUCAI most urgent cases. There was an important deployment of the police force when the organs were taken from the airport to the hospital.
The operation began at 16:53 pm and ended at 21:30 pm.
