The contributions of Sir Russell Brock to the early development of cardiac surgery are multiple. However, one of the most telling was his description of 3 cases of pulmonary stenosis in 1948 treated by direct transventricular valvulotomy. His subsequent treatise, The Anatomy of Congenital Pulmonary Stenosis, published in 1957, outlined this direct approach to cardiac lesions, a philosophy commonly adopted in modern care of cardiac lesions and a major contribution to cardiac surgical thinking.
