Date:9/13/2012

TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SynCardia Systems, Inc. (www.syncardia.com), manufacturer of the world's first and only FDA, Health Canada and CE (Europe) approved Total Artificial Heart, announced today that University of Kentucky (UK) Medical Center has successfully transplanted its first patient to receive the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart. Zack Poe, 21, received his matching donor heart in July after five months of life with the Total Artificial Heart.

"When we first met Zack, we knew that he was the perfect candidate to receive the Total Artificial Heart as a bridge to transplant," said Dr. Charles Hoopes, director of the UK Transplant Center. "The Total Artificial Heart worked exactly as we had planned, and it allowed Zack to gain back his strength before receiving an appropriate donor heart."

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
