Early Heart Transplant Surgery in the UK
MetadataShow full item record
Some of the key players in the early heart transplant operations in the UK gathered to consider the events of 1968, when the first transplants took place and their immediate and long-term implications. Not only were surgical advances reviewed, but also the professional, social and legal disquiet at what, by the end of the 20thC, has become a widely accepted and almost routine operation for many cardiovascular surgeons. Cardiac surgeons attending include: Professor Tom Treasure (Chair), Sir Terence English, Professor Donald Longmore, Mr Barry Ross, Mr Donald Ross, Sir Keith Ross, and Mr John Wallwork. Several distinguished cardiologists and anaesthetists also contributed. Tansey E M, Reynolds L A.
