Apparently there a new inroads into medicine, due to acupuncture.
This is all very well and cosy, but I will say that open heart surgery, minus general anaesthetic and using acupuncture instead, does seem a tad too radical for me!
Besides which, it doesn't seem to be practical to be conscious during such routines either. I mean, there you are on the operating table, hearing a surgeon say something along the lines of 'We are going to have to move quickly, otherwise the paitents aorta will burst within the next few minutes!', I mean, that's enough to give anyone a heart attack in itself!
