Who was Arthur Vineberg?

Arthur Martin Vineberg, OC was a Canadian cardiac surgeon, university lecturer and author. He was "famous for his experimental and clinical studies in revascularization of the heart".

He published two books, How to Live with your Heart; the Family Guide to Heart Health and Myocardial Revascularization by Arterial/Ventricular Implants. He was working on his third book, The Complete Guide to Heart Health, before his death.
