Research by the authors and expert opinion obtained from interview and questionnaire response predict the availability of an acceptable artificial heart for use in humans, and the development of proper medical procedures for its installation, within the next 15 to 20 years. Present medical advances are reducing the number of heart problems solvable by artificialheart implantation, but, because of increasing population, the actual number of those needing this operation may not decrease.
