Cardiac Surgery History, Some Helpful Facts & Links

By Adam Pick on August 9, 2007

Ready for a crash course called, “Heart Surgery History 101”?

I don’t know about you… But, as I was preparing for a double heart valve replacement surgery of my aortic and pulmonary valves, some of the questions that ruminated in my cranium were:

In light of these questions, I did what most heart valve surgery patients do… I Google’d it!!!!

I wanted to know more about the cardiac surgery history and guess what… Google did not let me down.

Under the search term cardiac surgery history, there were over 2.1 million pages of information.

Under the search term heart valve surgery history, there were 1.7 million pages of information.

And, under the search term heart lung machine, there were 1.9 million pages of information.

(FYI, for fun, I Google’d my own name, Adam Pick. I did the search in quotes – like this “adam pick” – to filter random queries. Only 1,150 pages of information. I guess I’m not as popular as the heart surgery terms above.)

With that said, I found some bits of information and created a page of information to help you better understand the history of heart valve surgery and heart bypass surgery. Click below to read it!
