For paper delivered by Manly Stallworth for Smithy, ""Figure 2 - This figure and the next four figures show the steps of partial mitral Valvulotomy through a transventricular approach. The insert above shows the skin incision. The pleural cavity is entered through the fourth or fifth rib bed depending on the size of the heart. A segment of the costal cartilage above and below the resected rib is removed.""

For paper delivered by Manly Stallworth for Smithy, ""figure 5 - Showing the valvulotome within the mitral valve. As the instrument is withdrawn, the cutting surfaces are opened and allowed to impinge on the anterior margin of the stenotic valve. Closure of the cutting surfaces causes excision of a portion of the valve which is held within the telescoping mechanism of the instrument.""
