ABUTH records first breakthrough in open-heart surgeries
A major breakthrough was recorded in open-heart surgeries by a team of medical experts at the multi-system Afe Babalola University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Ado-Ekiti.
The feats were achieved by the medical experts at ABUTH, in collaboration with their foreign partners, Professors Tayo Adeleke and Paul Davies, United States (U.S.)-based cardiologists.
During the launch and review of the operations by the experts held at Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD) at the weekend, Adeleke said that they were able to record successes in all the patients operated upon due to the expertise and hard-work of the medical personnel in ABUTH and good equipment in the hospital.
Adeleke advised Nigerians to conduct a routine check on their blood pressure, which has been identified as the chief cause of heart failure globally.
He added that the experts from U.S. had successfully performed over 10,000 open-heart surgeries for a period spanning 21 years.
