Correspondence, Van G. Hungerford to C. Walton Lillehei regaring the construction of a Sigmamotor pumping unit

Subject

Open Heart Surgery

Description

Controlled cross circulation was a method of open heart surgery devised by C. Walton Lillehei, Herbert Warden, and Morley Cohen in the research laboratories of the Department of Surgery at the University of Minnesota. During the operation, a donor supported a patient's circulation while the patient's heart was being operated upon. A Sigmamotor pump pumped the blood through polyvinyl tubes connected to the patient and donor.
