The main trends in development of mechanical circulatory support systems for total heart replacement that overcome fundamental flaws of a pulsating artificial heart are described. These trends are either technological improvements of the pulsating artificial heart concept or changes in the classical concepts of the artificial heart and the corresponding structural changes. In conclusion, we present the concept of a non-pulsating total artificial heart based on two rotary pumps that is being developed at the Department of Biomedical Systems of the National Research University MIET.
