Abstract

Pneumatic total artificial hearts (pTAHs) have been under development for nearly three decades. Survival in experimental animals has gradually increased from several hours in the initial experiments to nearly a year in more recent reports. Recently, temporary implantation of pTAHs as a bridge to heart transplantation has been reported by several groups. This report presents recent clinical and experimental experience with the Penn State University pneumatic total artificial heart (PSU-pTAH). Study materials, animals, methods and results are discussed.
