We lost a legend. Dr. Walter G. Wolfe was a great mentor and moral compass. His work guides the way we treat aortic dissection today. Here is one of many articles he used to give me, always hand signed, as well as 2 of his important papers.@STS_CTsurgery @AATSHQ @OfficialSTSA pic.twitter.com/1faDR5KkMD
