Donald Ross, cardiac surgery pioneer dies
It is with great sadness that we report the death of Donald Ross on the 7th of July 2014 in London. As well as creating the Ross procedure, he performed the UK's first heart transplant, which was the world's 10th heart transplant.
We would like to invite you to add your memories of this pioneer of cardiac surgery to the comments section below.
