University of Washington Leads All SynCardia Certified Centers with 10 Implants of the Total Artificial Heart in 2012
Date:12/6/2012

SynCardia Total Artificial Heart patient using the Freedom® portable driver. The patient, avid hiker Chris Marshall, logged more than 600 miles while he waited for his donor heart. On Sept. 12, he was successfully bridged to a heart transplant after 219 days of support. Currently, UW has four Total Artificial Heart patients waiting for a matching donor heart.

"The availability of the portable driver has given our patients the opportunity to be discharged while awaiting transplantation," said Dr. Mokadam. "This is a great advance for our program. We look forward to when the smaller devices under development become available. It will allow this lifesaving technology to be offered to a wider patient population that is currently being undertreated."

The current 70cc Total Artificial Heart fits a majority of men and some women. It is designed for use in patients with a Body Surface Area (BSA) of 1.7m² or greater. SynCardia is currently developing a smaller 50cc Total Artificial Heart designed for patients with a BSA of 1.2-1.7m².

There are currently 74 SynCardia Certified Centers worldwide, including 39 in the U.S. There are an additional 30 hospitals currently undergoing SynCardia's four-phase certification process.

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

CAUTION – The Freedom portable driver is an investigational device, limited by United States law to investigational use.

The 50cc Total Artificial Heart is not for Human Use. This product is in the research and development phase and will not be available for sale in the United States or Europe until all regulatory
