It is an honor to represent the faculty, staff, and residents of the University of Cincinnati Section of Cardiothoracic Surgery, and all of us thank Dr Reed for selecting our program to present the Kent Trinkle Education Lectureship today.
As most of you know, Dr Trinkle was one of our predecessor giants in thoracic surgery, in part due to his contributions to this organization and to the training of residents. While this recognition of Dr Trinkle is entirely appropriate and fitting, examination of the minutes from the Council meeting held November 4, 1992, indicates that the president-elect, Dr Gordon Murray, "commented that the 1993 program will be dedicated to recognizing the accomplishments of the thoracic surgical programs within the Southern Thoracic Surgical Association (STSA) boundaries." Furthermore, "Dr Murray suggested this might be an ongoing lecture presented annually at the meeting." In addition, the minutes from the Council meeting held April 24, 1994, indicate as chair, "Dr Murray encouraged that the STSA continue to invite a thoracic surgery program director within our geographical boundaries to present information dealing with his program."
We hereby acknowledge our debt of gratitude to Dr Murray for his original suggestion to establish an annual lectureship highlighting thoracic surgery education. Our fledgling program at the University of Cincinnati is honored to join the list of those who have made presentations previously.
In the interest of full disclosure, it should be noted that the presentation today is out of order, or at least irregular, in that there is a small stream known as the Ohio River that separates Cincinnati and much of Ohio from the previously mentioned STSA boundaries. We will assume that Dr Reed was well aware of this fact and simply took the prerogative of the president and chose to ignore it.
