Ganga Hospital, Coimbatore, becomes the first hospital in the world to use Shira Clamps in the operation theatre. Enterprising reconstructive microsurgeons Dr. Hari Venkatramani and Dr. Madhu Periasamy operated on their respective cases using the Shira Clamp.
Shira Clamps successfully assisted the surgeons in anastomosing a vein and an artery in an end-to-end fashion. The post-operative followups showed positive outcome.
The story of Shira Clamp begins!
