Geez, that is one sick-lookin dude. He must have been on death's door to get that kind of replacement approved. I wonder if it unfairly skews survival rate data - by the time someone is far-gone enough to warrant an artificial heart, the rest of his organs are kaput too?

Also, they should have thrown in lungs and a set of stake knives, just sayin'!
