Dear Readers,
Come September and we all start enjoying the balanced fall weather. This month has a special significance as ‘World Heart Day’ is observed on the 29th of September. BLK Heart Centre, one of our Centres of Excellence, has conducted some of the most crucial heart surgeries and is amongst the most sought after centres in the region. This ‘World Heart Day’ special issue features a heart procedure involving the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), an innovative technique of replacing the Aortic Valve of the heart through a small blood vessel in the leg.

In another classic case of a ‘stitch in time’, there is a gripping story of a middle-aged man who suffered a sudden heart attack at his workplace. Luckily, as you will and out, his colleagues’ presence of mind and our doctors at the Emergency made sure that the story had a happy ending.

Continuing our international collaboration, we entered into a strategic partnership with CARe Medical College Hospital, Bangladesh, under which both the hospitals shall be engaged in working together to strengthen each other’s capabilities.

I would like to thank those who have been providing us their candid feedbacks and suggestions. We would be happy to continue getting your valued feedback at editorial@blkhospital.com.

Stay Healthy! Stay Positive! page-3
