Medical researchers in China unveil new artificial heart

Medical researchers in China unveiled a sheep fitted with a new type of artificial heart this week.

It's reportedly a smaller, lighter artificial heart than previous prototypes and was developed using aerospace technology. Scientists say the sheep has lived more than 60 days with this new artificial heart and is in good condition.

But it's still under study and not available anywhere else, yet.

The heart was jointly developed by the china academy of launch vehicle technology and an international cardiovascular hospital in northern China.
