Abstract

Forty years have passed since the first heart surgical department was founded in Hungary. In the University Hospital (present name: Cardiovascular Surgical Clinic of Semmelweis Medical University of Budapest) the Hungarian "pioneers" had produced internationally respected results in the mid-fiftieth with the operation of closed mitral commissurotomy. However the technique of cardiopulmonary bypass was first introduced into the clinical practice quite early, it has not become a routine everyday procedure until the late seventies. Over the last 15 years period the number of open heart surgical cases has increased permanently, and the operative mortality decreased at the same time. The analysis of 4743 cases performed between 1976 and 1990 showed improving results both in the field of valve replacement and coronary artery surgery and the recent operative mortality figures (3-5% in different groups) are comparable to other European centers.
