He and his team carried out more than 800 surgeries la

st year, increasing from 21 surgeries in 2000, the first year he returned to Zhengzhou from Australia, he said.

Cheng hoped the schematic diagrams could make a contribution for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in the future.

Besides his persistence on drawing the schematic diagrams, he also keeps improving techniques for his surgeries.

He has been using the 8-0 sutures, the most delicate and fine surg

ical stitches for heart surgeries, ever since he came back to the hospital in 2000.

“For the anastomosis (or connection) of tiny coronary blood vessel in heart surgery, th

e 8-0 sutures can maintain better blood flow to the heart compared with other size of threads,” Cheng said.

This is a challenge for a surgeon because he has to be very gentle in the process when co

nnecting the blood vessels of 1.5-2.0mm with this kind of fine sutures, either not too loose or not too tight.

Cheng is one of the five surgeons who use this technique in almost every case of coronary bypass operation in China, according to Dahe Daily.

Washington foolish to defy economics law and turns in the

The root cause for the repeated twists and turns in the China-US trade talks lies, to a grea

t extent, in the United States’ serious deviation from, and disdain for, the objective laws of econ

omics. The fact that China will never accept its unreasonable demands further complicates the matters for the US.

The US administration’s often competing and clashing objectives-though m

any of them are understandable-cannot be realized simultaneously. For instance, the U

S hopes to revive its industries and boost its real economy while maintaining the huge bubble in its financial market.

A dream called sustainable reindustrialization

Yet the US expends huge amounts of its resources just to maintain its mo

netary hegemony and thus ensure its financial sector offers higher pay and return on inv

estment compared with the real economy sectors, which helps it to maintain its advantage in

it hoped everyone would pay attention to the lack of father figures, and return to the family for love.

“Everything can be shared in this era, apart from family love,” the company said.

Regarding the second Belt and Road Forum for Intern

ational Cooperation, to be held in Beijing on Thursday through Saturday, S

ong said the ministry will help deepen economic and trade cooperation with other coun

tries. “China will build more free trade zones with countries that are willing to do so,” Song added.

“As for the existing free trade zones, we will reduce administrative barriers in trade

and investment and push the formation of a big Belt and Road marketplace.”

While some critics have argued that the initiative will lead countries i

nto debt traps, Song said debt can be solved through joint efforts to promote the devel

trialization, urbanization and modernization accelerates, their debts will gradually decrease.”

population, it will create massive infrastructure and economic movement that will build its own rules.”
