患上末期肝癌的劉曉波獲美國及德國專家會診,有指劉曉波向兩位專家表達出國就醫意願,但負責治療的瀋陽醫院中國專家表示,將劉曉波轉運過程不安全,而外國專家亦同意,沒有更好的治療方案。不過,兩名海外專家今日發表聯合聲明,表示把劉曉波轉到國外可以安全地進行,並且德國海德堡大學及美國MD安德森癌症中心均準備接收劉曉波,向其提供最佳的治療,又指存在其他治療劉曉波的方法。兩人的說法,否定了瀋陽醫院的官方口徑。

兩名海外專家德國海德堡大學醫學院外科系主任比歇爾(Markus Büchler)和美國MD安德森癌症中心放療系教授赫爾曼(Joseph Herman)日前分別抵達中國,到瀋陽的中國醫科大學附屬第一醫院與當地醫生會診劉曉波。

兩人在聯合聲明中,確認當地醫院對劉的診治服務質素,及其對肝癌的診斷,亦已提議給予善終護理,但認為可能存在其他醫療選項,包括介入性程序及放射性治療。

對於劉曉波及其家屬均要求到德國或美國診治,兩位專家認為,雖然轉移病人永遠有一定程度的風險,但劉曉波可以在適當的醫療支援及護理下安全轉移,惟需要盡快進行。

同時,兩人指,德國海德堡大學及美國MD安德森癌症中心均已同意接收劉曉波,並準備向劉曉波提供最好的醫療。

NOW新聞則在瀋陽採訪到德國的醫療及外交團隊,並追問劉曉波有無要求出國及病情,對方均表示不予置評,其中一人更表示:「我們正身處中國,你知道,我們的溝通......」

另外,由美國來會診的專家亦沒有回應,只著記者向美國大使館查詢。

聲明全文:

Joint Statement from Dr. Joseph M. Herman, Clinical Research Director, Department of Radiation Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Dr. Markus Büchler, Chairman, Department of Surgery, University of Heidelberg

On Saturday, July 8, Dr. Joseph M. Herman of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Dr. Markus W Büchler of University of Heidelberg met with the medical team at the No. 1 Hospital of the China Medical University to participate in a medical consultation for Liu Xiaobo and provide their professional recommendations.

Drs. Herman and Büchler acknowledge the quality of care that the No. 1 Hospital of the China Medical University has provided to Mr. Liu since his admission. Drs. Herman and Büchler agree with Mr. Liu’s diagnosis of primary liver cancer. The physicians have recommended Mr. Liu receive palliative supportive care. Additional options may exist, including interventional procedures and radiotherapy.

Liu Xiaobo and his family have requested that the remainder of his care be provided in Germany or the United States. While a degree of risk always exists in the movement of any patient, both physicians believe Mr. Liu can be safely transported with appropriate medical evacuation care and support. However, the medical evacuation would have to take place as quickly as possible.

The University of Heidelberg and MD Anderson have each agreed to accept Mr. Liu for treatment. Both institutions are prepared to offer Mr. Liu the best care possible.
