Where Are They Now? Top 10 for 2012

Every year, Cleveland Clinic releases its list of the Top 10 Medical Innovations for the year that follows. Recently approved or up-and-coming in the space, these solutions grabbed the attention of our thought leaders for the waves they were making in medicine. But what happens to these innovations after they’re rolled out on stage? Join us as we move back through time and ask of the Top 10 Medical Innovations, ‘Where Are They Now?’

Innovation in Our DNA – Part 5: Innovation Across Disciplines

Cleveland Clinic built highly innovative lung and kidney transplant programs in recent decades. It continued to push boundaries when it entered the field of facial transplantation. In 2008, Maria Siemionow, MD, PhD, and head of Plastic Surgery Research at Cleveland Clinic, led a surgical team in a 22-hour procedure that marked the first near-total face transplant in the United States. The surgeons replaced nearly 80 percent of the face of a woman who suffered severe facial trauma, including all of her features except for her upper eyelids, forehead, lower lip, and chin.

Innovation in Our DNA – Part 4: Ushering in the Modern Era of Heart Care Cont.

In 1956, a team of surgeons led by Donald Effler, MD, performed one of the world’s first stopped-heart surgeries. They used an artificial heart-lung machine developed by Dr. Kolff to sustain blood oxygenation to a 17-month-old baby while his tiny heart was surgically repaired. The heart was taken off the machine post-surgery and resumed beating on its own. The following year, Dr. Kolff implanted the first completely artificial heart in a lab animal. Dr. Kolff continued his pioneering work with artificial hearts after leaving the Cleveland Clinic in 1967 to join the University of Utah. In 1982, a University of Utah team transplanted the first totally artificial heart, based on Kolff’s design, in a 61-year-old patient.

Innovation in Our DNA – Part 2: Innovation Champions

Dr. Crile continued to be an innovation champion in Cleveland Clinic’s formative decades. He was also a tireless practitioner, conducting as many as 30 procedures a day. He created a welcoming environment for others itching to push the boundaries of accepted practice and find new, better solutions to patient problems.

At The Heart of Innovation: Q&A w/ Cardiovascular Thought Leaders – Sean Lyden, MD

At The Heart of Innovation: Q&A w/ Cardiovascular Thought Leaders – Sean Lyden, MD

For many, the words ‘heart care’ don’t bring to mind vascular specialties, but the heart and the body’s peripheral circulation are more closely intertwined than one might think. At Cleveland Clinic, the structure of our Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute reflects this overlap – facilitating collaboration for superior outcomes. For this reason, alongside his sheer inventiveness, we’ve chosen to include Sean Lyden, MD, Department Chairman, Vascular Surgery, in our ‘Heart of Innovation’ heart month campaign. Through his interview, Dr. Lyden opened our eyes to the decrease in vascular surgery invasiveness through time, the value of Cleveland Clinic’s unique institute structure, and the spotlight on cost of care that must accompany innovation.
