But after reading this article your answer for the above question will be definitely a “YES” as an artificial heart has been transplanted into a patient for the first time in medical history at Georges Pompidou Hospital in Paris, France.

World's first Artificial-heart

The artificial heart weighs 2lb, three times the weight of a real heart and contains bovine tissue and sensors that adapt the blood flow. According to medics it would beat for at least five years. The device mimics heart muscle contractions and contains sensors that adapt the blood flow to the patient's moves.

The artificial heart is motorized by external, wearable lithium-ion batteries. Inside the heart, surfaces that come into contact with human blood are made partly from bovine tissue instead of synthetic materials such as plastic that can cause blood clots.

The artificial heart, developed with the help of engineers from the Dutch-based European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS). Further if it is made widely available it is predictable to cost about £150,000.

Auxiliary French medics said the anonymous male patient who received the device was awake and responding well after an operation. Surgeon Alain Carpentier who performed the implant, said: “It’s about giving patients a normal social life”. It will raise France’s reputation as a country at the forefront of medical innovation.

There’s no doubt with that incredible artificial heart, thousands of people all over the world can save their lives.
