Abstract

The Pennsylvania State University began research on a portable, electric motor driven total artificial heart in 1980. The first 2 acute studies were performed early in 1982 after several cadaver implants. Four chronic animal implants were then attempted with the fourth animal 'E. T. ', living for 222 days in excellent physical condition. This family established that the total artificial heart with an implantable electric motor drive can function as well as pneumatically powered devices supporting animals in excellent physical condition.
