A Jordanian surgeon among a team treating Prince Philip


Tell me – The health of Prince Philip, “Duke of Edinburgh” and the husband of Queen Elizabeth II of Britain, needs more precise and different care than he received during the past two weeks at King Edward VII Hospital in London, so they transferred him yesterday to another in London as well, which is Hospital St Bartholomew, which contains the center of his prescription. The British newspaper, “The Times”, in its issue today, is one of the most important cardiac centers in the world.

They transferred him to “St. Bartholomew” because the supervisors of his treatment there, including the Jordanian surgeon Samer Nashif, feared that an infection he suffered from, and was admitted to the first hospital on February 16, will lead to complications and aftershocks affecting his heart, especially since he is 99 and 8 months old. Net, “In an archived report, that he had previously suffered a heart problem, he was admitted to the hospital 9 years ago, and surgeons installed a stent to liquefy blood flow in his coronary artery.

And Dr. Samer Nashif, who was born 53 years ago in Jordan, lived most of his childhood and some teenage years in Lebanon, and from him he traveled at the age of 17 to England to study, according to his short biography on the Internet, and he was the one who told the newspaper that the infection that the prince was suffering from was of Greek origin. Revealing its nature yet, except that it is not from the new “Corona”, it can greatly affect his heart, as well as the heart of any person with a later age like him.

‘Not just a little infection’

Dr. Nashif, famous in Britain, and “The Times” previously published a report on him on May 30, 2015 that occupied more than half a page, is the author of the book The Angina Monologues on angina, and described the hospital in which Prince Philip was important and good “but it is general, and not It has a cardiology unit “unlike the hospital he works in,” where cardiology specialists are available at all times, and this is an indication that perhaps the Duke of Edinburgh’s health problem goes beyond the usual infection.

He also mentioned that the infection that the prince is suffering from “is not just a small infection, so he needed to seek treatment in the hospital, and this may cause some pressure on the heart, but we do not know exactly what he suffers from (..) This does not necessarily mean that there is a serious problem. There are those who are 40 or 50 years old and have hearts that may be much worse, “adding to the newspaper that few people reach 99 years of age, without one having any heart failure.” Then he assured that the level of monitoring in the hospital in which he works “will be better, and he will be able Specialists intervene faster, “he said.
