New Delhi: Fifty five-year-old Bhadwan Dass from Haryana, a diabetic, was close to losing his leg due to gangrene. But a hospital on Delhi`s outskirts has used stem cell transplant to save his leg from being amputated.Dass, hailing from Hisar, underwent the surgery in December at the Asian Institute of Medical Science in Faridabad."Patients such as Dass with critical blocks in leg vessels and impending gangrene of the leg cannot undergo bypass procedure or angioplasty as they have been through the procedure once," said Mukesh Goel, chief cardiac surgeon of the cardio-thoracic vascular unit of the hospital.
