"All the medical action is certainly risky. All possible risks have been tried to be prevented, so be prepared if the worst does happen something unexpected, then the patient's family could not accept.

"You'd better give me all the medical information into the right patient, but need to be reminded also that doctors are not gods and can happen things that are beyond our reckoning," said Menaldi.
