Who was René-Joseph-Hyacinthe Bertin?

René-Joseph-Hyacinthe Bertin was a French anatomist known for his pioneer work in cardiology. He was the son of anatomist Exupère Joseph Bertin.

He was the author of Traité des Maladies du Coeur et des Gros Vaisseaux, an important work on the pathological anatomy of the heart. In this book he discusses topics such as auscultation, valvular deformities and hypertrophy of the heart. His student Jean-Baptiste Bouillaud assisted him with its edition.

Bertin originated the idea of having three designations of cardiac hypertrophy, which he called "eccentric", "concentric" and "simple" hypertrophy of the heart.
