The author is the dean of myocardial revascularization surgeons. Dr. Vineberg operated on his first patient in 1950 at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal; from then until 1961 he relied on improving clinical knowledge and autopsy studies to ascertain the patency of the anastomoses of the internal mammary artery. Dr. Vineberg has a wealth of experience in experimental animal surgery to revascularize the myocardium. His 28-year follow-up of 562 patients shows a perioperative mortality of less than 2% and a longterm survival in triple and quadruple coronary artery disease at least 30% greater than that in similar patients treated
