Top 10 “Best Children’s Hospitals” Include 3 Pediatric Centers Offering SynCardia Total Artificial Heart
Date:6/27/2012

Tucson, Ariz. (PRWEB) June 26, 2012

SynCardia Systems, Inc., manufacturer of the world’s first and only FDA, Health Canada and CE (Europe) approved Total Artificial Heart, announced today that U.S. News & World Report has named three pediatric centers that offer the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart among the nation’s Top 10 “Best Children’s Hospitals” for Cardiology and Heart Surgery in its annual list. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was ranked #2, Texas Children’s Hospital was ranked #3 and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center was ranked #9.

In May 2011, Texas Children's became the first pediatric hospital in the world to implant the Total Artificial Heart. The patient, 17-year-old Jordan Merecka, was born with a "reversed" heart (dextrocardia) and his heart vessels backwards (corrected transposition of the great arteries). In August 2011, he became the first pediatric Total Artificial Heart patient to be discharged from the hospital using the Freedom® portable driver, the world’s first wearable power supply for the Total Artificial Heart. Jordan received his heart transplant on Oct. 20, 2011. This August, he will begin his first day of classes in the Maritime Systems Engineering program at Texas A&M.

“One of the most impressive things about the Total Artificial Heart is it can take the most ill patients who are in multi-system organ failure, reverse the process and recuperate these patients for whom other forms of mechanical therapy may fall short,” said Dr. David L.S. Morales, Jordan’s surgeon and the new chief of pediatric cardiothoracic
