 Item
Identifier: B063.03.0003.00011
Overview A heart surgery in progress at National Jewish Hospital. The cardiac surgery program was started in 1948 and discontinued in June of 1968. This program was one of the first in the West to perform the heart valve operation, mitral commissurotomy in the late 1940s. Even though the program had produced pioneering work in open-heart and lung surgery, it became too expensive to maintain and was no longer considered unique.
