It seems that researchers have stepped one step ahead in their discovery of mini heart pumps powered by batteries with the successful attachment of the device in a surgery ran over a Brit grand-dad.
The patient, who has underwent the above surgery is 60 years old Mr. Barry Wade, who suffered a heart failure and was severely sick that doctors could not run a transplant to improve his health rather they preferred attaching the revolutionary mini heart pump powered by batteries to serve his condition.
Retired Mr. Wade is the world’s first patient, who underwent the procedure and today is living with the attached battery operated mini heart pump.
Doctors have suggested that their patient is now fit to leave hospital and live at home. In his new life there is no change except the addition of the tiny 3INCH titanium pump and its two portable batteries that he has to carry in his shoulder bag.
Medical industry eyes over the pioneering £100,000 HeartMate II device with a hope to help thousands of those heart patients, who have yet not got the transplant surgery due to lack of such fitness and mobility in their bodies.
In his statement the dad-of-four said: “I have a new chance of life and I am looking forward to the birth of my new grandson next month. I feel privileged to pioneer this device.”
