ABSTRACT
Richards, Dickinson Woodruff (1895-1973) was an American physician. He won the 1956 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for refining the technique of cardiac catheterization. Cardiac catheteriza-tion involves threading a long, flexible tube through a large blood vessel in an arm or leg to the heart. Richards shared the prize with his research partner, the French-born American physician Andr� Fr�d�ric Cournand, and with the German physician Werner Forssmann, who introduced this technique of cardiac catheterization in 1929. The technique enables doctors to detect and treat many diseases of the heart.
