Abstract: Shortly after the turn of the century, at the University of Chicago, Alexis Carrel and Charles Guthrie pioneered methods of suturing blood vessels that are in general use today and established the technical feasibility of transplanting organs. Later, at the Rockefeller Institute, Carrel's experimental surgery developed methods of operating on the heart. A large part of modern cardiovascular and transplant surgery is thus built upon foundations that Carrel laid down. Microvascular anastomosis requires nonsuture methods and promises to further extend the range of vascular surgery.
