Abstract

More than 30 years have passed since Kolff and his co-workers performed their first successful implantation of a total artificial heart (TAH) in a dog [1]. Survival times of more than 6 months were later achieved by different groups in experiments [2], and the first clinical implantation of a TAH was performed by Cooley and his team in 1969 [3].
