TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SynCardia Systems, Inc.

On Jan. 14, 60-year-old Jan Detert was admitted to University of Muenster as an emergency heart attack case (acute myocardial infarction). He was also suffering from a ventricular septal defect, a hole between the left and right ventricles of the heart.

Mr. Detert underwent emergency surgery that included aortocoronary bypass to create a new path to his aorta around a blocked artery, in addition to closing the hole between his heart ventricles using a patch. Two weeks after Mr. Detert's initial recovery from this surgery, he deteriorated when the ventricular septal defect recurred because his tissue had been severely weakened by the heart attack.

"SynCardia's Total Artificial Heart was our only option to save this patient's life," said Prof. Dr. Hans Scheld, Director of the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. "This case demonstrates that the Total Artificial Heart is capable of bridging a patient with extended myocardial infarction, including ventricular septal defect, to successful heart transplantation."

On Jan. 30, Prof. Dr. T.D.T. Tjan and Prof. Dr. Andreas Hoffmeier implanted Mr. Detert with SynCardia's Total Artificial Heart. His condition stabilized and three months later, on April 29, he became the hospital
