Drs. Peter Smith and Thomas D'Amico, Division of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, and Dr. Michael Mulvihill, General Surgery Resident, penned a terrific article on the history of the thoracic surgery program at Duke. The article appears in a special issue of Seminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, which features great institutions in cardiovascular surgery.
