Why wait 50 years, we are quite capable of producing a continuous flow artificial heart. One that is not only very small but would last the life of
the patient. However, don't be expecting to see one any time soon as there simply no money in it. Transplants are big bucks and then with the need
for medications to suppress the immune systems rejection of the transplant. Big pharma is not about to let it happen let alone the AMA or FDA.
Its not about saving lives, its about making money at our expense.
generally speaking, our economy is based on being able to rpovide a cheaper more cost effective product.
If one or two companies can provide the product (IE, artificial heart) at a seriously reduced rate, despite it being cheaper, they'll start raking
in money, of course provided the cut to the various funding organizations.
