Vincenzo Gallucci was one of the most authoritative Italian cardiac surgeons, a fine, gentle, and extremely talented surgeon. He is credited with the first implant of a glutaraldehyde-fixed, stented porcine Hancock bioprosthesis in 1970 and with the first orthotopic heart transplantation performed in Italy in 1985. After 30 years, the memory of a great surgeon, scientist, and teacher is still alive, particularly in those who received his important heritage.
