HeartWare Completes GLP Studies of Next Generation MVAD® Pump; Data Presented Today at ISRBP Congress
Date:9/9/2011

th a newly designed controller, early next year.  We look forward to exploring the potential of the MVAD Pump for both left and right ventricular support, as well as the potential to benefit smaller-sized patients or those with smaller hearts, including pediatric patients."

About the MVAD System

The MVAD Pump is designed to require less invasive surgery than that required to implant currently available devices.  In particular, the MVAD Pump is expected to be implanted without the need for a median sternotomy of the rib cage, as was demonstrated during the preclinical study presented today.  By reducing the invasiveness of the surgery, HeartWare hopes to be able to treat a greater proportion of heart failure patients.

The MVAD Pump has been shown over a series of pre-clinical studies to have comparable blood flow characteristics to the Company's HVAD Pump.  

More than 750 patients across Europe have received the HeartWare Ventricular Assist System, which features the HVAD Pump, a left ventricular assist device designed to provide circulatory support for patients in the advanced stage of heart failure.  A proprietary continuous flow pump, the HVAD Pump is capable of delivering up to 10 litres of blood per minute and is designed to be implanted adjacent to the heart, avoiding the abdominal surgery generally required to implant similar devices.  

Highlighting HVAD at ISRBP

"In addition to Dr. McGee's presentation on the MVAD GLP studies, there were four other presentations on the HeartWare Ventricular Assist System.  These highlighted many of the novel attributes of the HVAD platform such as wave form capabilities, flow estimation advances, self-regulating behavior and pump performance during exercise," added Mr. Godshall.  "The broad spectrum of presentations demonstrate both the Company's technology leadership in mechanical circulatory support, which extends beyond the HV
