Abstract

Objectives Cardiothoracic surgeons and practitioners of cardiovascular medicine have a long history of humanitarian aid. Although this is worthwhile at multiple levels and occasionally described in some detail, few efforts have a proven algorithm with demonstrable outcomes that suggest effective educational methodology or clinical results approaching accepted standards in developed countries.

Results This program model has evolved over 25 years, during which it has been replicated several times and scaled throughout a vast and populous country. Since 1989, Russia has undergone considerable social, political, and economic changes. Our program model proved successful throughout this time despite dynamic social, political, and medical landscapes.

Conclusions The positive results of our program model indicate that these methodologies may be helpful to others attempting to address the worldwide shortage of cardiovascular care and particularly the complex interventions required in the management of congenital cardiovascular disease.
