Title

Correspondence, Nazih Zuhdi to Leontine Hans, regarding open heart research in Oklahoma

Subject

Open Heart Surgery

Description

Mohamed Nazih Zuhdi (1925- ) was a medical fellow in surgery at the University of Minnesota from 1956-1957. In 1957 he became a member of the faculty of the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. He performed the first open heart surgery in Oklahoma in 1959 and the first heart transplantation in Oklahoma in 1985.

In 1961, Zuhdi was the first to describe the principles of total intentional hemodilution, diluting the blood during open heart surgery by priming the pump-oxygenator apparatus with a 5% dextrose water solution. This greatly reduced the amount of blood needed for transfusion during operations.

Leontine Hans was the office supervisor of the Department of Surgery in the University of Minnesota Medical School.
