Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, January 22, 197S THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 47 Chinese moderates receive boOSt Heart surgery for infants _______ __ ii enthusiasm' MARPO vsi.ANll Fla. tion science writers' torum Success rate of t TOKYO (AP) Chinese moderates got a boost from the election of 70-year-old Vice-Premier Teng Hsiao- peng to the top rungs of the Communist party. The short, witty and volatile Teng was named a party vice- chairman and member of the committee of the politburo by a plenary session of the central committee, meeting secretly Jan. 8-10. Teng's re-emergence as one of the half dozen most power- ful men in China marks an ad- vance in Premier Chou En- lai's efforts to undo the damage done to the party and the state by the radical left wing during the 1986-69 Cultural Revolution. It is seen by observers in Tokyo as a strong new en- dorsement of Chou's policy of detente with the West, which Teifg has supported domestically and in- ternationally. The party's general- secretary before 1966, as well as one of Chou's 18 vice- premiers, Teng was humiliated during the three- year purged by the radical lef- tists led by the late defence minister Lin Piao and Mao's Chiang Clung. Denounced as a traitor, renegade and counter- revolutionary, he was paraded through the streets ,'ike a com- mon criminal and was reported to have attempted to take his I own life. He was stripped of his posts and sub- jected to "re-education" in 1967. In April, 1973, he was dramatically restored to power by Chou. Four months later Teng was named a vice- premier and in January, 1974, he was raised to the Politburo, the leading organ of the Com- munist party. The 75-year-old Chou was stricken by a heart attack last April and has been in and out of hospitals ever since. Thus Teng and Vice-Premier u Hsian-nien have borne the brunt of Chou's duties for almost a year. Teng began his relationship with Chou 45 years ago as a fellow student and they have collaborated closely ever since. Teng is in a position to suc- ceed Chou himself should the premier .decide to step down during the coming session of the fourth National Peoples' Congress. The central com- mittee completed preparations for the congress but no date was set.' The choice of Teng does not seem likely to be received with unbounded enthusiasm' by Mao's wife or her proteges Yao Wen-yuan, Chang Chun- chiao, and Wang Hung-wen, often described because of their ties to their coastal city as the "Fhanghai Mafia." Firebrands "of the Cultural Revolution, they had every reason to believe after their successes that they would reap the rewards. Instead, many of the men and women they pillored have been restored to normal life, and some to power, by the moderate Chou. MARCO ISLAND, Fla. (AP) Doctors are perform- ing open heart surgery on in- fants just a few days old, cool- ing a baby's body to room temperature and halting the heartbeat up to an hour while delicate, life-saving repairs are made. The youngest patient so far was 36 hours old and weighed a mere five pounds when a Boston surgical team cor- rected a congenital heart defect in which blood in veins from the lungs drained im- properly into the heart. Dr. Aldo Castaneda of Bos- ton's Children's Hospital told an American Heart Associa- tion science writers' forum here that the procedures probably will be available soon at clinical centres specializing in open heart surgery. "The technique has opened a new era in the early correc- tive treatment of congenital heart disease in newborn in- he said. "The only potential limiting factor now what happens to the.brain because of the interruptions of blood circula- tion during the surgery." No signs of brain damage have been found yet, but they may not show up until the child is five years or more old. Success rate of the new treatment has been 88 per cent versus 70 per cent for traditional treatment, which involves stopgap surgery early, followed by open-heart surgery a few years later. Another disadvantage to the two-stage treatment is that an infant still suffered from heart disease after the stopgap surgery and was slow to develop until open-heart surgery later in childhood, Castaneda said. "If you want to have impact on the problem of congenital heart defects, it's clear you have to get them in the first three months."
