Dan Baum of PopSci:
"This 10,000-rpm, no-pulse artificial heart doesn't resemble an organic heart--and might be all the better for it.
As many as five million Americans suffer some form of heart failure, but only about 2,000 hearts a year become available for transplant. The obvious solution to that scarcity is to build an artificial heart, and how hard could that be?"
Finally doctors have come up with a functional artificial heart.
