Podcast: Milestones in Cardiac Surgery

The podcast "Milestones in Cardiac Surgery" looks back at the most important events in the history of cardiac surgery: the first transplantation of a human heart in 1967 by Christiaan Barnard in South Africa; the first artificial additional heart, which was implanted almost exactly 50 years ago in the calf Esmeralda by Jan Navratil in Vienna in 1975 and the first transplantation of a pig heart in the USA two years ago.
