A Record 125 SynCardia Total Artificial Hearts Implanted by Surgeons Worldwide So Far in 2013

pened the flood gates in respect to the treatment possibilities
for a quickly growing population of children in heart failure, including adolescents suffering from chronic rejection of their transplanted heart, end-stage heart failure accompanied by multiple congenital defects and a late-stage failing Fontan circulation,” said David Morales, MD, chief of Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

“SynCardia’s Freedom® Portable Driver allows stable patients to be discharged from the hospital to wait for a matching donor heart at home and in their communities, said Michael P. Garippa, SynCardia’s CEO and president. “When patients are home, they are happier. They are sleeping in their own beds, exercising, eating out and socializing and some even return to work. They are getting their bodies in better shape for living life and their transplant.”

The Freedom® Portable Driver, the world’s first wearable power supply for the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart, provides precisely calibrated pulses of air to move the blood-pumping diaphragms within the heart. The driver, carried in a backpack or shoulder bag, has supported more than 145 patients for the equivalent of over 75 patient years.

Another reason for rapid growth in the use of the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart is expanding availability. “Our implant capacity has grown 300 percent due to the Companion 2 Hospital driver. The Freedom portable driver makes mobilization and discharge of stable Total Artificial Heart patients a reality,” Garippa said. “In the U.S. where we are in an FDA-approved Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) clinical study, 81 patients have been supported
