The famous cardiac surgeon Denton Cooley who found the famous Texas Heart Institute five and half decades ago died at 96 years old (‘Denton Cooley, surgeon who performed first US heart transplant, dies at 96’, Gulf News, November 20). This is the latest development from US cardiac world and it has been a loss. He was the man responsible for more inventions in cardiology, bypass surgeries and many other procedures in the cardiovascular field. His demise was a great loss to the whole world. I pray for this great legend in the medical world.
