Biography
I have wide interests in the field of cardiac surgery. I used to do a lot of operations for congenital heart diseases, esophageal varix bleeding, and peripheral arterial diseases in the years of 1974-1982. Afterwards, my major works are surgeries for coronary artery diseases and valvular heart diseases. Since 1988, I and my team had done 420 cases of heart transplantation. In order to improve the surgical success rate of aortic dissection, I modified the ring of intra-luminal graft. I used titanic ring (vascular ring connector) to connect the vascular graft with the fragile aorta, which greatly reduces the organ ischemic time and mortality rate. Almost half of the patients need no blood transfusion. I hope most cardiac surgeons can do successful operations for patients with aortic dissection.
