Marginal improvement in Maran's condition

CHENNAI OCT. 3. There is a marginal improvement in the health of the Union Industries and Commerce Minister, Murasoli Maran, in the past 24 hours, an Apollo Hospitals medical bulletin said today.

Mr. Maran had undergone a heart-valve replacement surgery on September 25.

Doctors have been battling to control a pre-existing fungal infection and the complications, which developed later.

"His cardiac status continues to be normal. His liver function is being closely monitored and he is on renal dialysis. He remains conscious and alert,'' the bulletin added.
