Description

Alfred Blalock of The Johns Hopkins Hospital was a well known cardiac surgeon who performed the first procedure to treat the congenital heart defect Tetralogy of Fallot (1944). Owen Wangensteen, chief of the Department of Surgery at the University of Minnesota, was a colleague of Blalock's, and wrote to him to announce the success of the controlled cross circulation procedure developed by C. Walton Lillehei's surgical team. Lillehei's team was the first to repair the congenital heart defect known as a ventricular septal defect (1954).
