Comments on CARMAT Bioprosthetic Total Human Heart Replacement
'George Walt's corporate existence proved the workability of wholly mechanical organs...'- Philip K. Dick, 1964. (Read the complete story)

"The problem with being an avid science fiction reader and then seeing science reality is that reality often winds up feeling like a (very rough) first draft. I was pretty impressed with this until I saw all the klugey external gear that goes with it. Give me a one piece prosthetic or give me death!"

"I, too, am a bit of a purist. However, the benefit of this device is that the patient can apparently walk around entirely untethered to other machinery. Which is a pretty good accomplishment. Sorry about the let-down, though."

"didn't Chev Chelios wear a little fanny pack like that along with his mechanical heart in Crank 2?"

"Not your fault Bill. You're just keeping us informed. Mostly I blame the world for not living up to my expectations. And you're right; being able to go untethered is a huge step. "

"Interesting that the artificial ventricles pump alternately, while the natural ventricles pump together.Presumably there is enough "give" in the system to compensate. I wonder what it sounds like."

"I wonder what it feels like from the inside."
