Excellences, Permanent Representatives;
On June 25, 2018, a 181 days-old boy named Adam López Macías underwent a surgery aimed at correcting a life-threatening congenital malformation that consisted in a transposition of the great arteries. The surgery lasted 5 hours. His delicate condition, plus a subsequent hypotension and bradycardia, forced doctors to keep his small sternum open until June 29, that is, 96 hours.
