(Talk | contribs) db|nn-bio, and false information: John Heysham Gibbon and Robert Jarvik were inventors of artificial hearts. 05:01, 3 October 2007 Quinsareth


Answer: There is a terrible misconception regarding this topic. The Jarvik artificial heart was implanted in 1982, 13 years after the events of Houston, Texas. On April 4, 1969, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, a patient named Haskell Karp, lived for sixty-four hours with the artificial heart designed by Dr Domingo Liotta and implated by Dr Denton Cooley, until a human heart was available for transplant. This was the FIRST CLINICAL USE IN HUMANS. Dr Liotta original works on this topic and published in scientific journals are dated from 1958. Dr Jarvik was probably at elementary school at that time. 05:26, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
