Abstract

A 100-C3-size roller screw electric total artificial heart has been implanted in 10 animals. Four of those animals survived in excess of 100 days, with one animal living 205 days. The 205 day animal, Agnes, had a preoperative weight of 103 kg and gained 73 kgs over the 205 day implant duration. The calf was under automatic electronic control the entire duration of the experiment, and tolerated weekly exercise very well. These experiments indicate that electric motor-driven total artificial hearts offer a viable alternative to the larger more cumbersome pneumatic type total artificial hearts. Comparable survival times with pneumatic and electric devices are now achievable.
