Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the First Implantation of the Total Artificial Heart

Dr. Denton A. Cooley performed the world’s first total artificial heart implant on April 4, 1969, in Houston. The device, developed by Dr. Domingo Liotta, was implanted in a 47-year-old patient with severe heart failure.The patient lived for nearly three days until a human heart was available for transplant. This was one of the most significant medical milestones for patients awaiting a new heart and paved the way for mechanical devices to be used a bridge to transplant and launched a quest to build a total artificial heart that lasts to this day.
