Craig Lewis: The First Man To Live Without A Heart (Photos)

Have you seen seen the man living without a heart? Is is possible to live without a heart? Well read the news article below.  A gentleman named Craig Lewis, a 55-year-old experiencing a life threatening heart disease, named “amyloidosis”, was admitted to the Texas Heart Institute.  Amyloidosis (am-uh-loi-DO-sis) is a rare disease that occurs when a substance called amyloid builds up in your organs. Amyloid is an abnormal protein that is produced in your bone marrow and can be deposited in any tissue or organ.  Luckily, Dr. Billy Cohn and Dr. Bud Frazier from the Institute came up with what they call a “continuous flow” device which would let blood to circulate through his body without a pulse.  They detached Mr Lewis’ heart and then connected the device -the patient was up, well and speaking with doctors in the same day.  The device is formed by intricately tying together two ventricular assist devices, replacing the entire heart, It whirls instead of pulses, spinning blood through the body in a continuous flow.  Dr. Cohn is a expert surgeon, as well as an discoverer and scientist who has consumed a large part of his life developing technologies to substitute or repair the human heart. The most distinguished device being what is called the Left Ventricular Assist Device, also termed as LVADs. Cohn teamed up with Dr. Bud Frazier to make a new discovery that uses the technology from LVADs to duplicate the functions of the heart’s right and left ventricles. They (inappropriately) tried their device on 70 calves, all of whom gave a flat line on an EKG, no heart rate or pulse, yet they were flawlessly normal, ate normally and related with each other normally but again, had no heartbeat.  The heart is a muscular organ that pumps blood around the body. Common diseases that affect the heart are myocardial infarction, endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, congenital heart diseases, atherosclerosis, myomas, cancers, hemochromatosis, coronary artery diseases and so on.
