Dear Readers,

This month has a special significance for us as we crossed yet another milestone of 100 successful Liver Transplants.

The cover story for this issue features a heartening case of a 7 year old boy who underwent a 12 hour long life-saving Liver Transplant surgery. Incidentally, this operation marks our 100th successful Liver Transplant, which makes this case even more special for us.

There are other equally engaging stories in this issue such as – a peculiar case of 50 year old man suffering from Renal Cell Carcinoma who was treated with Pulmonary Metastatectomy; you will also come across the case of a 65 year old obese lady with severe Mitral Stenosis who lived to tell her story after a non-surgical Balloon Mitral Valvotomy followed by Double Vessel Coronary Angioplasty. Article on Hip Joint Replacement surgery also makes for an enriching read.

It warms my heart to share with you that Heart Transplant surgery is now an important addition to our repertoire of complex cardiac procedures.

Encouraged by the response to our monthly Newsletter, we plan to bring an altogether NEW edition of Pulse from next month which will be an interesting amalgamation of successful case studies from BLK Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi as well as Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, Mumbai. We hope this will enhance the reading experience of our readers and provide them with more information and knowledge on the developments happening at both the hospitals.

All these achievements would not have been possible without the much-valued support of our patrons. Likewise, we always appreciate the words of encouragement we keep receiving from you all for every issue of BLK Pulse. Our editorial team will be more than happy to receive your feedback on this issue at:

Stay happy, stay healthy!
