Google Doodle Celebrating René Favaloro’s 96th Birthday:
Google on Friday, 12th July 2019, honored Favaloro with a Doodle on what would’ve been his 96th birthday.
Google Doodle introduced the Argentinian surgeon, Dr. René Favaloro’s ever green quote, “We’ is more important than ‘I.’ In medicine, the advances are always the result of many efforts accumulated over the years,” wrote Dr. René Favaloro.
At the start of the work the vital part of his work revolved around valvular and congenital diseases. After ending his work in the operating room, Favaloro would spend hours and hours studding coronary angiograms, cardiac muscle. The laboratory of Sones, father of the coronary angiography, had the largest collection of angiograms in the United States.
Google Doodle mentioned the historic success of Dr. Favaloro on May 9th, 1967, operated on a 51-year-old woman with a blockage in her right coronary artery. Attaching her to a heart-lung machine, he stopped her heart and used a vein from her leg to redirect blood flow around the blockage.
At the beginning of 1967, Favaloro began to concentrate the possibility of using the saphenous vein in coronary surgery. The basic principle was to bypass a diseased (obstructed) segment in a coronary artery in order to deliver blood flow distally. The standardization of this technique, called coronary artery bypass surgery, the procedure radically changed the treatment of coronary disease.
The historic Argentine heart surgeon René Favaloro, wrote these following books –
Surgical Treatment of Coronary Arteriosclerosis (1970),
Recuerdos de un médico rural (“Memories of a rural doctor”, 1980),
Conoce usted a San Martín? (“Do you know San Martín?”, 1986),
