Anastasiades Faces Heart Surgery

NICOSIA – Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades is facing surgery to repair a heart valve, an official said Nov. 12.

Government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said Anastasiades will undergo mitral valve surgery “very soon.”

Christodoulides said doctors spotted the problem while Anastasiades was undergoing a routine health check.

The 68-year-old President was admitted to a hospital in Brussels last month after suffering a nosebleed caused by high blood pressure, causing him to miss attending a European Union summit. The bleeding was stopped by cauterization.
