In memory of Vladimir Vladimirovich Alexi-Meskhishvili
On July 20, 2021, our colleague, an outstanding pediatric cardiac surgeon, Professor Vladimir Vladimirovich Aleksi-Meskhishvili passed away.
He was born on March 2, 1941, in the city of Tbilisi.
In 1966 he graduated from the Tbilisi State Medical Institute.
From 1968 to 1989 he worked at the Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery named after I. A.N. Bakulev in Moscow.
During his work at the Institute, Vladimir Vladimirovich performed several unique operations on infants.
The desire for constant improvement and new knowledge led him in 1989 to West Berlin, where, due to several events, he was forced to stay for the rest of his life.
In Germany, Vladimir Vladimirovich continued to save hundreds of children with heart defects from the USSR.
From 1990 to 2014 Alexi-Meskhishvili has worked as a visiting professor and leading surgeon at the German Heart Center in Berlin (Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin).
In addition to daily operations, the professor did a great deal of scientific work. He has published over 690 articles published in Germany, the USA, and Russia, including 10 monographs. His research interests included surgery and intensive care for congenital heart defects, the use of mechanical circulatory support, valve replacement in children, and the history of heart surgery.
The professor's contribution to domestic heart surgery was awarded the USSR State Prize (1985), E.N. Meshalkin (2011), A.N. Bakuleva (2011).
In 2014, Vladimir Vladimirovich retired and stopped operating.
