The University of Utah's institutional review committtee has revised its protocol for the implantation of artificial hearts and has submitted it for Food and Drug Administration review. The new protocol allows for the selection of patients in less advanced stages of heart failure, includes informed consent provisions for additional studies, and proposes some technical modifications.
