The Russian scientists planning to create an artificial heart based on the latest biotechnological and bioengineering advancements

The Russian United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation and the Russian National Research University MAI are planning to create an artificial heart based on the latest biotechnological and bioengineering advancements. Russian project leader Alexander Kulish says it will give us a chance to understand and model “the natural software” of the heart functioning that includes a great number of heart performance parameters, relationships, regularities, regulation & feedback loops and control system in general.

The United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC operating within the Russian National Corporation ROSTEC) and the Moscow Aviation Institute (National Research University MAI) are planning their new joint research project: creation of an artificial heart based on the latest biotechnological advancements and the accumulated bioengineering expertise. Russian project leader Alexander Kulish says the project start is scheduled for 2015.

The Russian researches say that as a rule the existing prosthetic devices designed for heart replacing are external devices which are used to provide life-saving bridges in heart failure patients before heart transplantation. The Russian team is aimed at creation of a new type of the artificial heart which should successfully function in a patient’s organism upon its implantation and which will be capable of providing high-quality life for such patients. The novel design concept of the Russian investigators is based on organization of a pulsatile blood flow regime which should be as close to the natural blood circulation as possible.

Russian researcher Kulish thinks a new biotechnology offering “heart bio-production” might appear within the nearest future, but there are many good reasons to expand bioengineering R&D activities for artificial heart creation because it will deliver new competence and expertise in knowing how to provide the proper performance of the human heart. Following this way, we’ll be able to understand and model “the natural software” of the heart functioning that includes a great number of specific performance parameters, relationships, regularities, feedback & regulation loops and control system in general.
