HOMENAJE AL DR. RENÉ FAVALORO

 

 

 

 

 

Intermedicina quiere realizar un homenaje al Dr. René Favaloro, que dedicó su vida a la medicina en todas sus acepciones. Un gran médico dedicado a la enseñanza y a la investigación.

Fue pionero de la cirugía cardiovascular mundial y la introdujo en la Argentina, donde cambió la cardiología a tal punto que se puede hablar de la cardiología Argentina antes y después de Favaloro.

La revascularización miocárdica por bypass que propuso, cambió el concepto de cardiocirugía y significó un tratamiento más eficaz que la medicación para pacientes con enfermedad coronaria ateroesclerótica avanzada, única alternativa existente hasta entonces. En 1967 concretó su primer bypass en la Clínica Cleveland de Ohio, Estados Unidos.

En la actualidad, el desvío coronario sigue siendo un procedimiento ampliamente utilizado y seguro, con una tasa de mortalidad de apenas dos por ciento y eficaz en el 95 por ciento de los casos, por lo que su legado, sigue salvando vidas en todo el mundo

 

Intermedicina cree que la mejor forma de rendirle homenaje es resumiendo su obra y el de su fundación, recopilando los principales artículos de sus 199 trabajos científicos..
