Dear Readers,

The month of May was replete with eventful happenings for both the hospitals in Delhi and Mumbai. Like every month, we bring you yet another issue of Pulse with some of the interesting case studies and articles.

The cover story this month features a case of a 25-year old young Thalassemic patient who undergoes a High Risk Bone Marrow Transplantation to lead a normal and healthy life. His story has a happy ending thanks to the team of doctors at BLK Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi who showed exemplary skills and expertise in handling such a complex case, thereby giving an opportunity to the patient for a fresh start to a healthier life.

There are other inspiring stories in this issue that I am sure will be of great interest to you that include the case of a TB patient suffering from a serious case of Pott’s Spine. This issue also contains an informative piece on how the introduction of 3D C-arm and Navigation has revolutionised the spine surgery scenario by providing improved technical assistance and visualisation for a better tackling of complex cases. There’s also an interesting segment which talks about the beneficial attributes of TiNbN coated Golden Knee Implants in Joint Replacements over the conventional implants. You will also find an engaging story of how an untiring team effort helped cure a cardiac hole in an extremely low weight pre-term baby.

I, on behalf of the editorial team, would like to thank all the contributors of this newsletter. Your stories and articles are very valuable and indispensable for the successful output of this newsletter month after month. We hope you will continue supporting us. If you have any suggestion, comment or any article or a story to share, please do reach out to us at and we will be happy to publish them.

Stay Healthy, Stay Happy!
