Belgrade, December 01, 2010. – During  the day of November 30 and overnight at the Military Medical Academy, an urgent living donor liver transplant was performed on a vitally threatend 16-year old female patient with fulminant hepatitis due to Wilson’s disease.

This is the 16th  liver transplant, and the second of two liver donor transplantations successfully performed by the MMA’s Transplant team.

The MMA’s head Maj.Gen. Prof. Dr. Miodrag  Jevtić particularly  emphasized an  exceptional contribution and great interest of the Biomedicine Department in the improvement of the Organ Transplant program in Serbia.
