Harinarayanan has received the heart of Kanyakumari native Selvin Shekhar (36), whose brain death was confirmed by doctors at a private hospital in Thiruvananthapuram.
Sruthi had received Lalichan's heart on August 13, 2013, on the occasion of World Organ Donation Day.
Despite extensive research over the years, the creation of fully functional human organs in a lab is not yet feasible. As a result, organ replacement from donors is the standard of care worldwide.
As the organs of young children are relatively small, there are complications in implanting them in elderly people.
The notice was sent by the DME after the Kerala State Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation pointed out to the government that a widespread campaign was being conducted against the organ donation programme.
Liver of the victim was transplanted into a foreign national without sanction of the internal authorisation committee .
The road to the transplant, however, is riddled with many questions and can be overwhelming for the patient and the family coping with this life-threatening situation.
The baby, measuring 49 centimetres and weighing 3kg and 100 grams, was delivered by planned caesarean section last week.
Manikandan of Wayanad got a call from a single mother (37) of two children asking if he was willing to donate.
