A team of American surgeons from Novick Cardiac Alliance performed an open-heart surgery on Tuesday at the Tobruk Medical Center on a 3-month-old child who suffered from a deformity in his heart and a narrowing of the pulmonary artery.

The head of the Cardiology Department at the Tobruk Medical Center, Dr. Anis Abdulali, stated that the surgery was successful and that the child is now being observed in the ICU.

It is worth noting that the American medical team arrived a week ago in the city of Tobruk and has so far conducted 18 open-heart surgeries for patients of all ages. The team includes surgeons, doctors, nurses and anesthesiologists.
