This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital receives a $4.1 illion grant for a study to determine the effect of pulseless blood flow on bodily functions, the Houston-based research institution announces Aug. 18. The data will be used to develop a total artificial heart with continuous, pulseless blood flow that would fit even in small adults and be more durable than current heart replacement devices, lasting 10 years or more without replacement, THI explains. The research will be led by THI physician O.H. Frazier, with team members from Thoratec and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School
