Man Dies after Donating Part of Liver to His Brother

A South Dakota man dies after donating part of his liver to his brother.  The University of Colorado Hospital, which performed its first successful live donor liver transplant in 1997, has temporarily suspended live donor liver transplants while it investigates the incident. Ryan Arnold died Aug. 2, four days after the surgery in which he gave part of his liver to his brother Chad, 38.  Chad Arnold was home briefly but was readmitted to a Denver-area hospital to continue recovery from a liver disease. In regards to how Chad is holding up, “I think overall his attitude is to make his life count,” said his brother Rod Arnold, 42.  Rod Arnold went on to say that “He was a man of uncommon character and someone I looked up to. What he did for Chad was really just an extension of how he lived his life.”  Rod Arnold said that Ryan went into cardiac arrest Aug. 1 and then fell into a coma.  The coroner has not determined the cause of death, he said.  Shortly before the procedure, Ryan Arnold told KDVR-TV he wanted to give his brother the chance to live a long life. “I’m healthy and I know I’ll stay healthy,” Ryan Arnold told the television station. “I’ll recover and I want to see him do the things he wants to do, and spend time with his family, and I want to have him around for a long time.” Rod Arnold said that Ryan went into cardiac arrest Aug. 1 and then fell into a coma.  The coroner has not determined the cause of death, he said.  Ryan Arnold is survived by his wife, Shannon, and three sons, ages 1, 4, and 6.
