As a responsible healthcare organisation we have always stressed
on the importance of prevention thereby enhancing health outcomes
which becomes even more imperative during these months of changing
weather. Preventive measures and early detection can go a long way in
avoiding extreme health complications.
The cover story from BLK Super Speciality Hospital chronicles the
extraordinary case of a woman with arguably the rarest reported
Broad Ligament Fibroid. Other featured articles include a challenging
case of a 97 year old nonagenarian who survived a hip fracture despite
multiple health concerns and an informative article on heart ailments.
The case of a man regaining his self-esteem by getting 9000 strands of
hair in Nanavati and the classic case of Corneal Reinnervation Surgery
also make for an interesting read.
We have also presented the heartfelt message left by a team of 10
critical care nurses from Muhimbili National Hospital, Tanzania who
were at BLK for over two months on an observership course.
Our thanks and appreciation to all those who have taken time out
to contribute stories for this issue. We look forward to receiving
more articles and stories from our regular contributors as well as
the first timers. Our editorial team will eagerly await your pieces at
