ABSTRACT
The author highlights the skills of early perfusionists and mentions that the most challenging cases they faced were aortic valve replacements which required the simultaneous operation of six roller pumps. With the advent of the coronary artery bypass operation, perfusionists were no longer required as new circulatory support devices became available. He however points out the accomplishments enjoyed today is the work of those pioneers, and therefore they deserve gratitude.
