Risky transplant operation on infant

Part of a liver and a small intestine were transplanted from relatives to a 1-year-old girl in a 14 hour operation this past Saturday at Kyoto University Hospital. This is the first dual transplant of that nature in Japan, and doctors are monitoring the infant's condition to see whether her body rejects the organs, a common problem in transplant operations.
