The story of RenÃ© Favaloro is almost unknown to the general public. Christian Barnard, the cardiac surgeon who performed the worldâs first human-to-human heart transplant, is much more famous than him; still, nowadays many more lives are saved thanks to Favaloroâs work rather than to heart transplants. This paper wants to pay tribute to aÂ great doctor and an extraordinary man: RenÃ© Favaloro.
