8. Life multiplied: Two women become first adults to share donor liver in Alabama
From Nov. 12:
Debbie Lethgo of Stone Mountain, Ga. and Eloise Jenkins of Castleberry had two things in common when they arrived at UAB Hospital: Advanced liver disease and small build. Because both women were small, they were good candidates for the first split-liver transplant performed in Alabama. The procedure began with two surgeons who spent more than four hours splitting the organ into two parts.
