Investigation lead: multiple kidney transplants recently completed at the No. 1 Hospital Affiliated with Jilin University; donors unknown

It is common knowledge that an organ considered for transplant must be of matching tissue type between donor and recipient. (In developed countries such as the U.S., the waiting time for a prospective transplant patient is several years, sometimes as long as ten years).

It was recently reported that multiple kidney transplant surgeries were performed at the No. 1 Hospital affiliated with Jilin University in Changchun, Jilin Province. Two transplants were done each day in early March 2009, which is cause for concern.

According to one patient's family, it took less than two months to find a matching kidney, and to carry out the surgery. The patient has been discharged, and the surgery was successful. The doctor stated many people are presently waiting for kidney transplants, and the hospital's schedule is full.

One patient is a 32-year-old man named Xiao Ke who works for the Jingyue Group at the Changchun City Police Department Traffic Division. He was diagnosed with uremia at the No. 1 Hospital affiliated with Jilin University right before the 2009 Chinese New Year. The doctor told him he would die if he didn't receive a kidney transplant. His family agreed to a transplant. A matching kidney was found in less than one month. The patient underwent weekly dialysis in the interim. Less than two months after his initial diagnosis, he underwent successful transplant surgery. His family went through connections and obtained the kidney for him and refused to reveal the details.

The time frame for another kidney transplant at this hospital is similar.

Xiao Ke's background: Xiao Ke's father Xiao Fangzhong is 61 and is nicknamed "Rat Xiao." He was a former deputy head at the Changchun City Police Department's Politics Division. He is one of the main perpetrators responsible for orchestrating the persecution of Falun Gong at that department between July 20, 1999 and 2002. He was implicated in a major corruption case in 2002 and admitted to a bribe, getting a three bedroom, two living rooms apartment. Because he was the protégé of Tian Zhonglin, the former Changchun City Police Department head, he was transferred to the position of deputy head of the Changchun City Civil Administration Bureau. He retired in 2008.

Another patient who received a kidney is a 17-year-old girl. The donor is also unknown, and the surgery was successful.

According to a doctor at the No. 1 Hospital affiliated with Jilin University, the head surgeons in these kidney transplants have performed the same procedure for more than ten officers from the Changchun City Police Department in the past four years, but he refused to provide information regarding the source of the organs.

Three doctors are capable of performing kidney transplant at this hospital: professor Fu Yaowen, associate professor Zhou Honglan, and associate professor Song Zhiyu.
