Dear Reader,

In the last edition of this year’s Pulse, we bring you some of the most complex and challenging cases that were performed at our hospitals in Mumbai and Delhi

For the cover story we have featured the case of an upcoming star of the Indian Women's Cricket team. She was admitted to Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, our group hospital in Mumbai, after sustaining an ACL tear and medial meniscus posterior horn tear. The specialist team at the hospital after careful examination and assessment of her specific condition decided to perform a double-bundle ACL reconstruction using dual hamstring graft and all-inside meniscus to treat her. The surgery went uneventfully. She is currently undergoing a rehabilitation program under the close supervision of the experts at Nanavati and will soon return to her normal form and start playing again. Another interesting story is that of a 24-year-old female patient with multiloculated cyst which was removed successfully by the experts at Nanavati. You will also find an interesting piece on Osteoporosis and weakening of bones as well as tips on how to maintain healthy bones after crossing the age of 50. There is also an article by Dr. Rajiv Bhagwat on his recent participation in the prestigious European Bifurcation Club at Brussels.

From BLK, we bring you an interesting article on use of Computer Navigation Technology for Total Knee Replacement Surgery by our Joint Replacement Specialist - Dr. Bhushan Nariani. There's also a story on how PFO intervention gave a 49-year-old female patient, who suffered Cryptogenic Stroke, a lasting cure. You will also find the story of a 16-year-old male patient with severe depression of the chest wall since birth and how his deformity got corrected all thanks to the experts at the BLK Centre for Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery.

Before I conclude, I want to thank you all for your continued support and contributions. If you have more such inspiring pieces fit for this newsletter, do share it with us at: editorial@blkhospital.com.
