THE EARLIEST PUBLICATIONS ON SELECTIVE CORONARY ANGIOGRAPHY. GM 2924.3. The 1960 volume contains Mason Sones's first published report describing the technique of selective coronary angiography, which he first performed in October 1958. W. Bruce Fye was the first to recognize and report on the significance of this book chapter that preceded the Garrison Morton entry that Sones and Earl Shirey published in 1962. The 1960 book chapter includes a 6-page discussion of the technique of selective coronary arteriography (which is illustrated with 12 frames depicting the opacification of the right and left coronary arteries). Sones describes the special coronary catheter he had designed in 1959 and explains that he had performed the selective procedure in more than 200 patients. The public first read about the technique in TIME magazine (item 2). It is impossible to exaggerate the significance of the invention of selective coronary angiography in terms of the development of modern cardiology and cardiac surgery.
