A Record 125 SynCardia Total Artificial Hearts Implanted by Surgeons Worldwide So Far in 2013
Date:9/24/2013

Tucson, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

On Sept. 24, 2013, the 125th implant of the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart was performed. This number equals all implants performed worldwide in 2012 and a 244% increase over 2011. SynCardia Systems, Inc. projects conclude 2013 with another new record – 180 Total Artificial Heart implants in one year, the company announced today.

Like a donor heart transplant, a SynCardia Total Artificial Heart replaces the two dying ventricles (that pump the blood) and four heart valves. It is the only device that eliminates the symptoms and source of end stage heart failure. For many heart surgeons it has become the standard of care for patients dying of heart failure affecting both sides of the heart (biventricular failure).

“In the sickest patients, especially when RV failure is present, we have found the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart to be the device of choice,” said Dr. Jack Copeland, professor of surgery at the University of California San Diego Health System. “It provides the patient with immediate, safe blood flow of 7 to 9.5 liters per minute through each ventricle using the shortest blood path of any mechanical circulatory support device. The right ventricle of the Total Artificial Heart helps reduce central venous pressure, which helps recover vital organs such as the kidney and liver.”

U.S. News & World Report’s 2013-2014 hospital rankings of the 50 best cardiology and heart surgery medical centers includes 27 that are certified centers or are in the process of becoming certified. That’s 54%, including four of the top five. Certified center surgeons are advancing the use of Total Artificial Heart to fit the needs of their patient populations.
