Dr. Glenn recruited Dr. Horace Stansel who trained with Ormand Julian at St. Luke’s hospital in Chicago. He had the reputation of being a skilled surgeon-the go to guy. He also was famous for the Damus-Kaye Sansel procedure to treat congenital heart defect.
The Damus-Kaye-Stansel procedure later becomes a key component of many pediatric cardiac procedures. It is a palliative procedure for patients with a single functioning ventricle with an obstructed rudimentary outflow, in which the aorta and pulmonary artery are joined using a patch (pink). The blue tube (made of Gore-Tex®) is known as a Modified Blalock-Taussig Shunt.
