1,200th Worldwide Implant of the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart Occurs in Indiana
Date:11/12/2013

ost all of what would have been O'Hara's in-hospital costs have been eliminated for this portion of his care. O'Hara is undergoing outpatient cardiac rehabilitation to regain his strength. He's also looking forward to fishing and eating out at restaurants.

"It's mind-blowing how technology has advanced to create new possibilities for patients with end-stage heart disease," says Dr. Wang. "Heart devices have evolved for the benefit of all patients."

SynCardia Systems Inc. manufactures the world's first and only FDA, Health Canada and CE (Europe) approved Total Artificial Heart. Like a donor heart, the SynCardia Heart replaces both failing heart ventricles and the four heart valves.

Originally used as a permanent replacement heart, the SynCardia Heart currently is approved as a bridge to transplant. A 10-year pivotal clinical study showed that the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart had a 79% bridge to transplant rate, which is the highest transplant rate for any approved heart device in the world.

O'Hara's June 26 surgery marked the 1,200th time the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart has been implanted. Since then the number of implants have reached nearly 1,250, accounting for more than 335 patient years of life on the device. So far this year more than 135 SynCardia Hearts have been implanted, more than in all of 2012.

IU Health Methodist Hospital is among 93 SynCardia Certified Centers worldwide. Another 35 medical centers are in the process of certification.

"Surgeons around the world are finding more reasons to implant the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart to help end-stage biventricular heart failure patients," says Michael P. Garippa, CEO and president of SynCardia Systems.

The Freedom portable driver is CE approved for use in Europe and undergoing an FDA-approved Investigational Device Exemption (I
