Jack Jones prepares to leave Sentara Heart Hospital following his heart transplant. Jones was implanted with The SynCardia Total Artificial Heart, the world’s only FDA, Health Canada and CE (Europe) approved Total Artificial Heart. It’s powered by the Freedom® portable driver, which is approved by Health Canada and CE and is awaiting FDA approval. The SynCardia Heart has a Humanitarian Use Designation as a bridge to transplant, but SynCardia is hopeful it will become available as a destination therapy this year.
