HOUSTON (AP) -- The third man to receive a fully self-contained artificial heart died Friday of complications from a stroke.
Bobby Harrison, who received the implant in a six-hour procedure on Sept. 26, suffered the stroke on Feb. 1.
"Mr. Harrison was a very brave man," O.H. Frazier, chief of cardiopulmonary transplantation at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, said in a written statement.
