Former vice president Dick Cheney finally underwent major heart surgery on Saturday after waiting more than 20 months on the transplant list, his office said.

Cheney, 71, suffered a long history of cardiovascular trouble including five heart attacks, before receiving the new organ from a mystery donor.

The Republican was recovering at the Intensive Care Unit of Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia, Saturday night, following surgery earlier in the day.

His aide, Kara Ahern, confirmed the surgery, adding: ‘Although the former vice president and his family do not know the identity of the donor, they will be forever grateful for this lifesaving gift’.

Cheney’s health problems began at the age of 37 when he had his first heart attack. In 2010, after suffering his fifth, he had surgery to have a small pump installed to help his heart keep working.
