Chapter 898: Kidney Transplant
When Deputy Director Yuan walked out of the operating theater, the atmosphere eased up a little.
Chief Miao turned around and walked off the stage, saying, “Boss Zheng, lets go together.”
Zheng Ren responded and gave his seat to Chief Yu Wangshan, letting him watch the operating table.
He tore off the surgical gown, took off the lead gown, and let out a long breath.
“Boss, will it work” Su Yun followed behind him and asked.
“I dont know, but if theres no other way, we can give it a try,” Zheng Ren said.
This kind of situation where one might live, but if one did not try, one would die without a doubt was what doctors hated the most.
“The incident in 1954 caused a great sensation in the end,” Su Yun said.
“Yes.” Zheng Ren nodded.
On Christmas Eve in 1954, Joseph E.
Murrays hospital received a pair of identical twin brothers, 23-year-old brothers Ronald and Richard Herrick.
Both of them were soldiers.
After their military service ended, the two of them retired together and prepared to start a new life.
However, at this time, the younger brother was diagnosed with severe nephritis.
Richard Herricks nephritis was so severe that even if he was treated, he would soon die.
Murray summarized all the cases and decided to do a kidney transplant between the two brothers.
Before that, Joseph E.
Murray had only done countless animal experiments.
He found that the closer the animals were to each other, the more likely they were to survive the operation.
For Joseph E.
Murray, the human experiment was a godsend.
But then he faced great social pressure, and the namesbutcher andexecutioner flooded in.
Because Richards nephritis was a chronic disease, it was life-threatening, but different from the patients in front of him.
Murray first performed a skin graft on the two brothers.
The results were exciting, and no rejection was confirmed.
But before the surgery, the surgery really became a huge social problem.
Murray, under great pressure, finally carried out the surgery under the judgment of the Supreme Court of the United States.
An organ transplant surgery, which required the judgment of the Supreme Court of the United States, was undoubtedly difficult to accept, as it made the doctors like murderers.
Later, the surgery was successful, but Joseph E.
Murrays first successful kidney transplant surgery did not win the Nobel Prize.
Su Yun, who yearned for the Nobel Prize, knew about this long-forgotten piece of history.
In 1990, Joseph E.
Murray won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his contribution to the study of human organs and cell transplants.
He won the prize mainly for the research of organ transplants, not for the new method of organ transplants.
From this, it could be seen that the judges of the Nobel Prize were resistant to new methods.
The difference between the success of the first surgery and the Nobel Prize was a full 46 years!
Therefore, almost everyone was not optimistic about the project of TIPS surgery.
There was a reason for this.
“Twins may not be a perfect match.” Su Yun turned on the mode of finding faults.
“This is one way.
Whether we do it or not depends on the situation.”
“Even if its a pre-operative match, it will take at least a day,” Su Yun continued.
“If we dont do it, we wont last a day.
If we do it, we still have a chance.”
“Boss, I cant help but praise your amazing train of thought.
Do you really want to create trouble for yourself” Su Yuns disdain was obvious.
“The situation is a little special.
Besides, Im only offering my opinions.
Since all the moguls are here to make the decision, when will I have a chance” Zheng Ren threw the lead jacket aside and wondered if he should use the grandmaster-level skill book.
“Kidney transplantation, Ive studied.
However, it looks like a kidney is easier to transplant than a heart, but thats only for surgery.
In terms of tissue structure, a kidney is countless times more complicated than a heart,” Su Yun changed the topic and said.
“That must be the case.
Can renal tubules and collecting tubes be printed out in 3D I think that technology will take at least 20 years.”
“According to a report on the MIT technology review website on October 19, 2016, Harvard Universitys materials scientist and bioengineering professor Jennifer Lewis laboratory used 3D printing technology to create a human kidneys middle and near-end tubules.
“This is the most important structure that constitutes the basic functional unit of the kidney.
Its function is almost identical to the proximal tubule in a healthy kidney.” Su Yun knew information related to 3D printing and organ transplantation like the back of his hand.
“But its only at this level.
There are no new reports around the world.”
“Its already very good that we can create the renal tubule.”
As the two of them spoke, they walked upstairs.
They were all in passages in the operating theater.
The laminar flow space and the suitable temperature made Zheng Ren feel particularly comfortable.
However, in the face of such a difficult surgery, in the face of a dying patient, no one could be happy.
Zheng Ren and Su Yun kept talking.
They were also using the conversation to relieve the tension in their hearts.
“Theres a lot of nonsense on the Internet, but its very eye-catching,” Su Yun said as he walked.
“In the past, I used to go on the Internet to pat bricks, but Im too lazy to do it anymore.”
“Everyone likes scaremongering gossip.” Zheng Ren knew what Su Yun was talking about.
The stories that circulated on the Internet usually happened at night, lie a man who could not resist the temptation and went to a hotel with a strange girl to discuss his life.
When they got excited, they passed out after a few glasses of wine.
When he woke up, he found himself lying naked in the bathtub full of ice.
Just as he regained consciousness, he felt a sharp pain in his lower back.
He saw a note beside the bathtub:Call the police, or youll die!
This kind of thing was most widely spread when the kidney machine first appeared.
Then there was the case of a man traveling abroad and suddenly losing his wife.
Then, he frantically searched for her for countless years.
In the end, he found out that she was begging on the streets.
Such a lie was not worth considering, but many people believed it.
Before a kidney transplant was performed, there was a very strict procedure.
First, it had to match.
After the match was completed, they could proceed to the next step.
Many patients who were waiting for a kidney were hanging their names in several hospitals that could do kidney transplants.
They would go to the hospitals as soon as they had news.
“Boss, do you know what my first thought was after I saw the story about cutting a kidney” Su Yun asked.
“You still have thoughts Youre really energetic.
I skipped it after I saw it.
I have no thoughts at all.” Zheng Ren was very nervous.
He could not help but start to criticize Zheng Ren.
“Tsk!” Su Yun did not argue with Zheng Ren.
After saying that, he said, “I think they just want to cook a meal out of kidney surgeries.
But if the medical environment is any worse in the future, I will become a freelance writer.
I guarantee that I will write all kinds of sensational things.
Even you wont be able to tell that they are fake.”
“Are you sure”
“…” Su Yun was silent.
Speaking of all kinds of knowledge fragments, Zheng Ren was not worse than himself.
‘But Boss, do you know how much pressure you are putting on people Su Yun thought to himself.
