Breakthroughs in medical science always get me excited. Some french researchers have developed an artificial heart that beats just like the same thing.
This can potentially mean alot to many hopeful patients who are looking for heart transplants.
The team, led by Dr Alain Carpentier, a renowned French heart surgeon,
presented a prototype of the artificial heart during a press conference
Monday in Paris. Carpentier has been working on this project for the
past 15 years.
According to ABC.com:
"This new total artificial heart is a first, because it is made of
biosynthetic tissues," Patrick Coulombier, deputy managing director of
Carmat, the biomedical company that developed the heart, told
ABCnews.com. These materials, made from animal tissue, are less likely
to be rejected by the human body.
"The risks of blood clots are limited with this new artificial heart
because of the use of biosynthetic tissues," Coulombier explained.
These tissues were first invented by Carpentier more than 30 years ago
for cardiac valve prostheses, which are sold today all around the world
and are made from animal tissues chemically treated to prevent human
immune systems from rejecting the heart.
Cryptocurrencies have opened up a whole new world of opportunities in the financial markets. They have been touted as the currency of the future. This new form of currency has already permeated the market, and many smart traders are making a pretty penny off the different types of cryptocurrencies. As you are aware, traders who invested in Bitcoin back in 2009 got ROIs thousands of times their initial investments. You, too, should consider taking advantage of the cryptocurrency craze. Read more
Color photographs appeared in the middle of the XIX century but were available only to a very narrow privileged circle of people. Therefore, it is normal if the family stores black and white photographs of relatives of those years. Many even like to review them again and again as old cards can awaken special feelings and memories, transfer through time. Read more
