The article discusses the presentation of CardioWest total artificial heart at the 30th Annual Seminar of the American Academy of Cardiovascular Perfusion in Dallas, Texas. It talks about the artificial heart for heart failure and its use against the left ventricular assist device (LVAD). It notes that patients are considered transplant candidates since the device was not designed as a permanent artificial heart. Further, protocols must be applied to help patients with the new device.
