Medical crews in European Gaza Hospital continue to offer their services in cooperation with the Italian pediatric cardiac medical delegation, after examining 35 cases in the EGH.
The Chairman of the Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Committee at the Ministry of Health, Dr. Saher Abu Ghali said that it is expected that 10 open-heart surgeries will be conducted, which will continue for a week so that two surgical operations are carried out per day.
The operations are performed for children who were born with congenital defects.
The presence of the Italian surgical delegation specialized in pediatric cardiac surgery comes within the Ministry’s policy aimed at developing the services provided in the field of pediatric cardiac surgery at the European Gaza Hospital in a manner that helps local medical cadres to conduct such operations, and reduces the burden on patients and the difficulties they face while traveling to obtain treatment abroad.
