TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SynCardia Systems, Inc.

Zack was first diagnosed with heart failure in January, when an echocardiogram revealed that his ejection fraction -- a measurement of how much blood the heart pumps out to the body during each beat -- was less than 10 percent. He was referred to UK Medical Center for advanced treatment options, and about a week and a half after his initial diagnosis, his liver began to fail.

In order to save Zack's life, UK Medical Center completed SynCardia's four-phase certification program in a record 25 days. Zach was implanted with the Total Artificial Heart on Feb. 10. Less than a month later, on March 5, he was
