Hopkins performs first U.S. ’six-way’ transplants

Baltimore Sun, April 9, 2008
Six kidney patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimre received new organs from six unrelated living donors in what the chief surgeon called the nation's first six-way "domino" kidney swap. Nearly 100 medical professionals took part in the transplants. Each transplant began simultaneously in different operating rooms, and surgery stretched over 13 hours. All 12 donors and recipients were listed in good condition, according to a John Hopkins spokesman.
