27-year-old Mohamad did not know that his heart was so weak. Suddenly his beats betrayed him and he found himself facing deficiencies in the left and right ventricle. He did not suffer from any health symptoms that warn him of this health problem, and without warning he found himself in the hospital for more than two and a half months waiting for a donor, all attempts were unsuccessful. The only viable option left was to implant the Syncardia Total Artificial Heart.
Considering the deteriorating economic and living situation and the Corona virus that has remained with us for many months, we are proud we took part in saving Mohamad’s life, along with Dr. Mohamad Saab, Dr. Righab Hamdan, and the medical team at Beirut Cardiac Institute.
