Anastasiades Heart Surgery Successful – UPDATE

NEW YORK – The National Herald has been informed that the heart surgery undertaken by Nicos Anastasiades, the President of the Republic of Cyprus, was succesful.

The team of surgeons and nurses at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan is led by known well-known cardiologist David Adams and includes distinguished Greek-American physicians.

An official says the surgery was to repair a heart valve and that he remains in stable condition.

Cyprus government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides says Anastasiades will remain in intensive care for the next few days.

Christodoulides said  that a surgeon performed the operation to repair the mitral and tricuspid heart valves.

The Maze-type procedure also aimed to repair Anastasiades’ occasional heart arrhythmia and was completed “without any complications or particular problems,” according to Christodoulides.

Anastasiades’ personal cardiologist and his physician were also present during the surgery.
