Since the first heart transplant surgery in Zhejiang Province in 1978, the SAHZU Transplantation Center has been forging ahead. It now owns highly capable teams to carry out liver transplant, kidney transplant, heart transplant and lung transplant. In recent years, the Center has made significant breakthroughs.
The liver transplantation team has completed the first combined dual lung and liver transplant in China. In Zhejiang province, the Center performed the first reduced volume pediatric living-donor liver transplant, the first pediatric living-donor liver transplant for amino acid metabolism disorder, the first split liver transplant between two pediatric recipients of one adult donor liver, and the first living pediatric liver transplant. The postoperative survival rate of its pediatric patients is in the leading level in the world, which makes the Center one of the world's top transplant centers. Furthermore, the Center has led the development of the first international expert consensus on accelerated recovery surgery (ERAS) in the perioperative period of liver transplantation, which has greatly improved the prognosis of liver transplant patients and effectively shortened their hospital stay.
The kidney transplantation team successfully completed the first living kidney transplant between husband and wife, the first laparoscopic living kidney procurement, the first DCD (Donation After Cardiac Death) heart-kidney combined transplant, and the first da Vinci robot-assisted kidney transplant in Zhejiang Province.
The number of heart transplants at the Center leads the country and tops the province. The surgeries have seen a 100% success rate and a 95% one year survival rate. The Center also owns a record of the longest preoperative ECMO support (45 days) in China.
The lung transplantation team completed the world's first split lung transplantation, the country's first lung transplantation combined with double gastroplication, and the first pediatric lung transplantation in Zhejiang Province. The team even performed a lung transplantation combined with coronary artery bypass graft on a patient who is so far the oldest to undergo this combined surgery in the country.
In 2019, a milestone was marked upon completion of transplants of one heart, two lungs, three livers, six kidneys within only 15 hours, successfully saving 12 lives.
For its outstanding contribution to scientific and technological achievement and innovation, the Center has received many national and provincial awards.
