Attempts to create an artificial heart were highlighted by our journal one year ago. Now we can say that there is no break-through news in this field: no technological progress, no pioneering research and no spectacular advancements are reported. An imperfect understanding of the cardiovascular system performance hinders any progress in the R&D activities aimed at the artificial heart creation. But from our point of view, all the existing design & engineering difficulties can be mastered. However in this connection another question comes to mind: is it reasonable in principle to design and produce an artificial heart?
