Japan emperor's heart bypass surgery 'successful'

Japanese Emperor Akihito arrives at the Tokyo National Museum to view an exhibition of 200 selected masterpieces from the Palace Museum of Beijing on Feb 13, 2012. Akihito, 78, will undergo heart bypass surgery on Feb 18 after tests showed the narrowing of his arteries has worsened. -- PHOTO: AFP TOKYO (AFP) - Japan Emperor Akihito's heart bypass surgery that lasted more than five hours ended successfully on Saturday, national broadcaster NHK and other media said. The 78-year-old emperor was advised to undergo the procedure after tests showed a narrowing of two of his coronary arteries. The Imperial Household Agency declined to immediately confirm the reports of the successful operation. His doctors were scheduled to hold a press conference from 6pm (5pm Singapore time).
