Four livers and four lungs were transplanted within 48 hours into seven patients, saving their lives, the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus said on Sunday.

The number of organs transplanted within such a short time – an Israeli record – was equivalent to those carried out by major European transplant centers, the Petah Tikva hospital said.

One patient received two lungs in the procedures in which 50 doctors, nurses, technicians and transplant coordinators were involved. All the recipients are recovering and doing well.
