Hungary: Baby Born to Brain Dead Mother

Quote:
Doctors at the University of Debrecen Medical Centre in eastern Hungary have announced that they delivered a healthy baby this summer, three months after the mother suffered brain death due to a stroke.

Béla Fülesdi said: “According to medical documents, this has never happened before – that a person could be a donor after such a long period on life support.”

And the baby's father is still in the picture. What a great find, gata!

Unfortunately, I could only find a tiny picture of the mother.


Baby Born to Brain Dead Mother in Hungary

By Agence France-Presse

November 13, 2013

A healthy baby boy was born in eastern Hungary after his brain dead mother was kept alive for about three months to bring him to term, a hospital said Wednesday.

“The baby is already growing up at home, with his family. He was delivered by caesarean during the summer,” Bela Furedi, president of the Debrecen University’s medical science centre, told journalists.

“He was born in the 27th week of pregnancy. He weighed only 1.42 kilos but was healthy.”

The 31-year-old woman was declared brain dead after a brain haemorrhage in her 15th week of pregnancy.

She was kept alive for 92 days in a state which allowed her organs to be donated, in a case described by the hospital as “unique” in the world.

Her heart, pancreas, liver and two kidneys were transplanted to four patients, said Furedi.

The family has remained anonymous, as guaranteed by Hungarian law in the case of organ donations.

Foetus survives from 15 to 27 weeks while mother is on life-support before being delivered by C-section

31 year old Hungarian mother suffered a stroke when 15 weeks pregnant

Tests revealed she was brain dead but the foetus was still healthy

Rather than switch the life support machine off, doctors left it on until the 27th week of pregnancy, when the mother's physical health declined

Baby born by Caesarean and mother's life support turned off 2 days later

Despite weighing only around 3lb, baby is now doing well, doctors say

By KRISTINA JOVANOVSKI

14 November 2013

A baby which was 15 weeks old when his mother was declared brain-dead was delivered by Caesarean section at 27 weeks, after doctors kept the mother alive on life support.

The Hungarian doctors who delivered the baby in July believe the birth is one of only three such cases in the world.

The family has asked for privacy and has not released the identity or sex of the baby.

The Hungarian doctors who delivered the baby in July believe the birth is one of only three such cases in the world.

The child was born three months after his 31-year-old mother suffered a stroke. Her life support machine was switched off two days after the Casearean section.

In the spring, she had been rushed to hospital, operated on but was declared brain-dead. She was kept on life support and doctors were able to see through an ultrasound that the foetus was moving.

‘In the first two days we struggled to save the mother’s life and it was proven... that circulation and functions stopped,' said Dr. Bela Fulesdi, president of the University of Debrecen Medical and Health Science Centre.

'On the second day when [other] examinations were carried out, we found the baby was alive and kicking well in his mother’s body.’

During the pregnancy, the father of the baby and grandmothers visited the hospital to rub the mother’s stomach and talk to the baby. A music therapist was used to help stimulate the foetus.
Doctors had to fight numerous infections and would turn the woman over to avoid bedsores.

The University of Debrecen Medical and Health Science Centre, where mother and child were treated. The mother's life support machine was turned off two days after the baby was delivered.

While they were hoping to keep the baby in the womb as long as possible, in the 27th week, the woman’s circulation became unstable and doctors decided to deliver the baby because the womb was no longer safe.

Head of the Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Department, Dr. Csilla Molnar, was in the delivery room with a select number of doctors while the family waited in the operating theatre.

‘The aim was not just to deliver a child but to deliver a healthy child,’ she said.

She added that there were three reported cases of births when the mother was declared brain-dead 15 weeks into her pregnancy - but one of those babies did not survive.

And that from those three cases, this instance is the only one in which organs were transplanted donated from the mother.

The woman’s liver, two kidneys, pancreas and heart were donated to four patients.

Typically, people are kept on life support for one or two days after being declared brain-dead before organs are donated.

Dr Fulesdi added, ‘Our case is special because we were helping the baby [live] and additionally we could preserve… five organs of the mother to be transplanted.’

The baby weighed about 3lb (1.5kg) when it was born and initially needed respiratory support. Despite this, Dr. Molnar was confident it would survive.

‘When the baby was born it was a fantastic moment, he immediately cried out, he was kicking. …it was an unforgettable moment for all of us who took part in the treatment.’

The baby was discharged from the hospital last month but doctors wanted to wait to make the announcement about the delivery until they were sure the baby would survive.

He is now developing well at home and doctors say it does not show any illnesses related to premature births although it will be continuously monitored.

Re: Hungary: Baby Born to Brain Dead Mother

It must have been heartbreaking for the baby's father and the rest of the family to go in to visit the baby in the womb and see the woman like that. It's very lucky the baby survived. At least the woman was able to bring her baby into the world and save four other lives.

Abstract
A 30-year-old woman suffered massive brain injuries after a motor vehicle accident at 15 weeks' gestation.

The patient was diagnosed as brain-dead on her tenth hospital day.
She was supported with intensive care for 107 days after this diagnosis, and a normal 1555-g male infant was delivered at approximately 32 weeks' gestation by repeat cesarean section.

The child is developing normally at 11 months of age. This represents the longest reported case of prolongation of pregnancy after brain death.
good to see the baby made it
