Surgical Aspects of Valve Implantation

  • Javier Fernandez

Abstract

The first successful closed mitral commissurotomy, performed by Charles Bailey on June 10, 1948, opened the era of definitive surgical treatment for acquired heart disease (1). With the introduction of the heart-lung machine by Gibbon (2) in 1953, direct open treatment of acquired valvular disease of all varieties became feasible. In these early surgical attempts to treat valvular pathology, the cardiac surgeon was challenged by greatly deformed, calcified valves, particularly when insufficiency was the predominant lesion.
