Abstract

One of the concerns when placing a total artificial heart is whether the device will fit in the thoracic cavity without impinging on vital structures. We report the creation of a patch in a recipient of the AbioCor Implantable Replacement Heart that allowed for an appropriate fit of the device without adversely affecting pulmonary and hemodynamic functions.
