In the premises of the state cardiovascular surgery department, Academician Dr. Zan Mitrev together with Dr. Nikola Hristov, Prof. Dr. Sasko Jovev, Dr. Marjan Sokarovski and Dr. Vasil Papestiev from the cardiovascular surgery department accompanied by a team of anaesthesiologists, cardiac perfusionists, instrumentalists, and nurses performed this operation which lasted about 5 hours , which is  officially the third completed transplantation in our country.
