A Total Artificial Heart
ctheartVCU Medical Center became the lead institution in a national clinical trial of technology that would allow artificial heart patients to recuperate, rehabilitate and wait in the comfort of their own homes until a donor heart becomes available for transplant.

The VCU Pauley Heart Center was selected as one of 30 centers to investigate a portable, mechanical driver that can power patients' artificial hearts and enable them to recover outside the hospital environment, including at home and at step-down facilities.

In April 2006, VCU’s cardiac surgery team performed the first t-TAH implant on the East Coast.  Since then, we have implanted over 40 t-TAH’s. Currently, VCU Pauley Heart Center is the most active t-TAH center in the United States.
