Surgeons at Prague’s Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine have implanted their first artificial heart. The surgery happened ten days ago and it was announced at a press conference on Thursday.
The 58-year-old patient suffered failure on both sides of the heart and couldn’t undergo regular heart transplantation. Doctors said he is in a good condition. The Czech Republic is the third country to perform the artificial heart surgery. France pioneered the surgery in 2014.
