Castaneda in memorium

In memoriam

Dr. Aldo R. Castañeda
July 17, 1930 – April 30, 2021

We announce with sorrow the passing of the Apollonian surgeon, Aldo R. Castañeda. On behalf of the World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery, we express our profound gratitude for having blazed the trail for your students and colleagues and helped the lives of so many children around the world! We present our sincere condolences to his wife, Arcely, his children, Claudia, Silvana and Aldo and to all grieving this loss.

Farewell and Godspeed, dear teacher and esteemed colleague!

— WSPCHS Governing Council

We have unlocked the full interview we did with Dr. Castaneda in 2010. You can watch it here.


The vision of the World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery is that every child born anywhere in the world with a congenital heart defect should have access to appropriate medical and surgical care.
