Attaullah Baloch, 33, who was the first patient at the Pims Liver Transplant Centre to receive a live donor liver transplant last week is in critical condition.
Baloch is in intensive care unit, confirmed the hospital sources while talking to The Express Tribune on Monday.
He was able to undergo surgery after his wife donated a portion of her liver.
He was suffering from hepatitis B which developed into chronic liver disease.
The liver transplant, which started early morning on May 3 and ended at 2am the next day, was carried out by a team of British and Pakistani surgeons.
It was the first ever surgery in the Liver Transplant Centre since its establishment.
The hospital management is making all-out efforts to keep it secret due to the fear of failure, the source added.
