d a transplant compared to only 40% of p-VAD patients. In addition, other biventricular support devices, even those totally implanted, provide a poor quality of life. The SynCardia Total Artificial Heart powered by the Freedom® portable driver provides patients with the mobility they need to resume life at home, as proven by Mr. Thiollet.”
Frédéric Thiollet was implanted with the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart on Aug. 5, 2011. Within two months of the surgery, he had gained back 35 kg (77 pounds) and was exercising daily for 4 to 5 hours, doing light weights and riding a stationary bicycle.
He has been waiting for a matching donor heart at home since Dec. 15, 2011, using the Freedom portable driver, the world’s first wearable power supply for the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart. He has been supported by the Freedom driver for more than 700 days.
“The benefit of the Freedom driver is invaluable,” said Frédéric Thiollet. “I have been able to return to my daily life with my family instead of having to wait for a donor heart for many months or years in the hospital. Due to the high level of antibodies in my system, finding a heart for me will be almost impossible. However, I will continue to go on in my own way thanks to the Total Artificial Heart. It allows me to love every day of life, and will continue to do so for a long time to come.”
