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
