In a 1978 publication by Follette and colleagues,121 the technique of blood cardioplegia was reintroduced. In experimental and clinical studies, these authors demonstrated that hypothermic, intermittent blood cardioplegia provided better myocardial protection than normothermic, continuous coronary perfusion and/or hypothermic, intermittent blood perfusion without cardioplegia solution. The composition of the best cardioplegia solution remains controversial, and new formulations, methods of delivery, and recommended temperatures continue to evolve.

35,36 After presenting this first model of a mechanical prosthesis at the American College of Surgeons meeting in 1949, Hufnagel applied this concept clinically for the treatment of aortic valvular insufficiency. In his first clinical paper published in Surgery in 1954,37 Hufnagel reported a series of 23 patients starting September 1952 who had this operation for aortic insufficiency. There were four deaths among the first 10 patients and two deaths among the next 13. Hufnagel’s caged-ball valve, which used multiple-point fixation rings to secure the apparatus to the aorta, was the only surgical treatment for aortic valvular incompetence until the advent of cardiopulmonary bypass and the development of heart valves that could be sewn into the aortic annulus position.

Blueprints by General Motors engineers of the Dodrill-GMR mechanical heart. 74 During the operation, the patient developed hypotension and cyanosis. He therefore was placed on partial bypass at 1 L/min for 20 minutes. Although the mass was resected successfully, the Italian machine was never used for open-heart surgery in humans. Forest Dodrill and colleagues used the mechanical blood pump they developed with General Motors on a 41year-old man76 (Fig. 1-3). The machine was used to substitute for the left ventricle for 50 minutes while a surgical procedure was carried out to repair the mitral valve; the patient’s own lungs were used to oxygenate the blood.
