Three people got a chance for a second life after a donor situation carried out by a team of Pirogov emergency hospital with coordinator Dr. Hristo Hristov, the Executive Agency Medical Supervision reported.

The relatives of a fifty-nine year old man who had fallen into brain death decided to donate his organs to help people unknown to them. Thus, doctors at the Military Medical Academy transplanted a liver to a forty-nine year old man, and at Alexandrovska Hospital two medical teams transplanted kidneys to a sixty-four year old woman and a fifty-one year old man.

The patients are in good general condition and remain in intensive care under medical supervision.
