SynCardia Total Artificial Heart Patient with End-Stage Renal Failure Recovers Kidney Function after Two Months of Support
Date:2/21/2013

urvive the wait for another heart transplant, so they decided to implant the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart.

"I was nervous at first, obviously," said Gonzalez. "After I got over the initial shock, I just kind of thought, 'OK... They're going to put this device in me and I'm not going to have a heart. It's going to be mechanical.'"

For almost two months after the implant surgery, Gonzalez continued to produce no urine, so she was scheduled for surgery on Jan. 2 to receive a permanent catheter. However, on Jan. 1, she began making urine.

"Even I had started to lose hope," said Dr. Morales. "And now, she has normal function to her kidney. This experience has made me very optimistic that many of the livers and kidneys that fail due to heart disease could actually be recoverable with the total artificial heart. Every time we put in this device, we learn something new."

On Jan. 12, Cincinnati Children's received approval from the FDA to switch Gonzalez to the Freedom® portable driver, the world's first wearable power supply for the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart. The Freedom driver will allow Gonzalez, who feels healthier than she has in years, to leave the hospital and return home for the first time since October.

"I keep telling her that I don't know what God's plan is, but there is a plan," said Gonzalez's mother, Leslie Hudson . "And she just has to keep pushing through."

The Freedom driver is CE approved for use in Europe and undergoing an FDA-approved Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) clinical study in the U.S.
