A new survival opportunity opens soon for cardiopathic people. They will get an artificial heart what will work in a manner like that of the normal human heart, says Alain Carpentier, a French cardiac specialist.
The new artificial heart will work with a battery and will be able to adapt to the daily human activities with the help of electric sensors. Possibly the human immune system will not throw the new artificial heart out.
Computer simulations and animal tests showed a good result. Two prototypes also exist in the US, but these can work temporarily only while the patient gets another man's heart.
