Abstract

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