Abstract

An ambitious group of pioneers led by Dr John W. Kirklin, 60 years ago, supported by a multidisciplinary team of physicians and technicians at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, embarked on a planned series of surgical cases using a heart-lung machine to allow direct visualization of the inside of the opened human heart to repair otherwise fatal congenital intracardiac defects. Their success sparked the beginning of a new era of open-heart surgery. In this historical article, we discuss the contributions of a few key figures of this revolution and also share the story of the first successful cardiac surgery operation using cardiopulmonary bypass performed at Mayo Clinic.
