Help Dinesh undergo a heart transplant

Dinesh a civil engineer was diagnosed with cardiac problem as soon as he was born n 1974. In those days as the treatment for cardiac problems was not well developed he was put on some basic medications.


Only in 1996, when he consulted a doctor in Manipal hospital he was diagnosed with a Single vertical disease and had to undergo a BD Glenn and Shunt under Dr Subhash Chandra. Later he underwent Coil Embolization of MAPCAS in the year 1998 and was on regular medications.

Later in the year 2015 as he developed Congestive Cardiac failure he was admitted for medical intervention and discharged after he improved. Now he has been advised Heart transplant at the earliest.
He is married for the past 9 years and his wife works as a receptionist in the medical sector. They are blessed with 2 children, one is studying in 2nd standard and the younger one is in LKG.

Mrs. Radha earns only Rs. 15000/- per month and the family depends on the small income they get where their household, children's school fees his medical expenses etc are managed.

 Due to his poor health condition he has stopped going to work and the entire family is dependent on his wife’s income. All the savings they had are going for his treatment and now as he has to undergo a heart transplant. The cost of the surgery is Rs. 2000000 for his treatment and so far the family could arrange only Rs. 500000. Your support can help Dinesh a long way.

Dear supporters,

We would like to thank you all for the contributions to provide the highest quality of care to Mr Dinesh B R.

Unfortunately, despite the medical team’s best efforts, Dinesh passed away on 1st February 2017. He underwent an orthotopic heart transplant on 4th January, immediately after his admission. However, he suffered from a critical heart complication post the transplant. 

Post operation, his ITU stay was prolonged due to an accumulation of fluid in his lungs. He was given oxygen support and nebulisation which improved his breathing problem. A psychology counselling was done thereby helping him to think positively. However, on 23rd, his conditions deteriorated and required half litre oxygen intermittently. He became progressively worse and on 28th he had rigidity of abdomen and low blood pressure.

Despite prolonged efforts, he could not be revived and passed on 1st February at around 8:15 pm.

We once again thank the donors for their support. May his soul rest in peace. We pray the family finds strength in this time of grief.

- Dr. Devananda N.S.
Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon, 
Manipal Hospital HAL Airport Road,
Bengaluru.
