William Ganz January 7, 1919 - November 11, 2009 was a Slovak-born American cardiologist who co-invented the pulmonary artery catheter, often referred to as the Swan-Ganz catheter, with Jeremy Swan in 1970 The catheter is used to monitor heart conditions, especially in intensive care units Ganz was also one of the first cadiologists to use enzymes to open clogged arteries, which can lead to heart attacks

Ganz was born in Kosice, located in modern-day Slovakia, in 1919 He enrolled at the Charles University School of Medicine in Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1938 The school was closed in 1940 following the start of Nazi Germany's occupation Czechoslovakia Ganz, who was Jewish, was sent to a Nazi labor camp in Hungary during World War II He was scheduled to be sent to Auschwitz in 1944, but escaped and went into hiding After World War II, Ganz graduated from Charles University in 1947 at the top of his class

Ganz worked in Czechoslovakia, which was under Communist rule at the time In 1966, Ganz was permitted to take his wife, Magda, and the couple's two sons on a vacation to Italy Instead, the family went to Vienna, Austria, where they applied for a visa to the United States He had relatives in Los Angeles, which allowed the family to move to the United States Ganz gained a position at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he remained for the rest of his career

Ganz and Dr Jeremy Swan first developed the idea for the pulmonary artery catheter in 1970 A balloon is placed at the end of a flexible catheter, which is inserted into the pulmonary artery Additionally, Ganz had a role in the development of thrombolysis, in which enzymes breakdown blood clots

Ganz died of natural causes on November 11, 2009, at the age of 90 He was survived by his sons, Dr Peter Ganz, a cardiologist at UCSF, and Dr Tomas Ganz, a pulmonologist at UCLA His wife, Magda Ganz, died in 2005
