Operation Open Heart (OOH) 2016

Decrease in OOH operations due to university unrest: Doctor

OOH launched its annual program this year to carry out surgery operations four times in one year.

The annual operation in the past carries out surgery on over 50 patients every year.

OOH cardiothoracic and anaesthesiologist Dr Arvin Karu confirmed that this has not eventuated this year, with only the first operation that took place in February.

This operation was carried out with the help of the Australian team where 10 children successfully underwent it.
