An 18-month-old girl from Spain, who was born with cancer, survived a six-organ transplant, reports the Associated Press, received by Rompres.

An 18-month-old girl from Spain, who was born with cancer, survived a six-organ transplant, reports the Associated Press, received by Rompres.
The girl, by the name of Cristina, was discharged after the operation that took place on March 25, but was announced only Wednesday by the La Paz hospital.
She was the fourth patient to undergo a multiple transplant in this hospital, but is the first patient to recover sufficiently to be discharged. The other three patients survived the surgery, but eventually died from infections.
During the operation that lasted 11 hours, the Spanish doctors replaced Cristina's liver, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, stomach and spleen.

All organs came from the same donor.
"It was a transplant of maximum complexity from all points of view," said Manuel Lopez Santamaria, the doctor who coordinated the team of surgeons.
The great danger to the child is now the infection and the risk of organ rejection.
Cristina was born with abdominal cancer and suffered several problems in the organs after a major artery was reached during an intervention aimed at removing the tumor.
At 15 months of age, she weighed only 6.5 kilograms and was fed intravenously.
"It's terrifying to see your child melting" slowly "and heading toward death," said the girl's mother, Maria Jose Garcia, thanking the parents of the donor child.
