Many children were evaluated during the first medical mission to Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, which took place from December 6th through December 20th. The local and international team performed fourteen open heart surgeries on children ranging in age from a few months to a few years old. The ten member international medical team worked very closely with the local team to diagnose, operate on and care for children with very complex heart defects.
