"Texas Man Pioneers Use of Beatless Heart" →

Craig Lewis, a 55-year-old Texas man who was about 12 hours away from death, became the first human to receive what doctors are calling the “beatless heart.”

The device — two ventricular assist devices intricately tied together, replacing his entire heart — was developed by Drs. Billy Cohn and O.A. “Bud” Frazier at the Texas Heart Institute in Houston.

They say this new machine, which whirls instead of pulses, is more reliable and could replace existing artificial hearts, which wear out and can cause clotting and strokes.

“Every animal created has a pulsitile heart, and to minic that was the natural way to proceed,” said Cohn. “But to make something that actually can beat 100,000 times a day, 35 million times a year, a man-made device has to perform with that kind of endurance.”

“A car can, but you change the oil and the spark plugs and do the maintenance and they go and go,” he said. “These pulsitating hearts work only a year or two, then fall apart.”

Older devices would have also been too large to place in women’s smaller bodies. The new beatless heart is “self-contained, smaller and a more durable device,” said Cohn.
