Total Artificial Heart Overview

The Pauley Heart Center’s total artificial heart program launched in 2006 and has evolved into the most prolific program in the country, with 50 mechanical hearts implanted thus far. Combined with nearly 20 years experience implanting left ventricular assist devices — which enhance the heart’s pumping function — and an array of technology and procedures to treat irregular heartbeats and blockages, the Pauley team has built a comprehensive mechanical circulatory support and heart failure program.
