SynCardia Total Artificial Heart Surpasses 100th Implant of 2013
Date:7/25/2013

Tucson, Ariz. (PRWEB) July 25, 2013

SynCardia Systems, Inc., manufacturer of the world’s first and only FDA, Health Canada and CE (Europe) approved Total Artificial Heart, announced today that as of July 18, a record-breaking 100 implants of the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart have been performed by SynCardia Certified Centers in 2013. This milestone was achieved three months earlier than in 2012, when the 100th implant was performed on Oct. 16.

2012 was a record-breaking year for SynCardia with 125 implants of the Total Artificial Heart at 54 SynCardia Certified Centers,” said Michael Garippa, SynCardia CEO and President. “Reaching 100 implants three months earlier than we did last year is a testament to our long-term growth trajectory, which will be close to tripling since 2009. We expect this growth to continue as more hospitals adopt the Total Artificial Heart as the new standard of care for end-stage biventricular heart failure.”

The 100th implant of the Total Artificial Heart was performed by Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Medical Center in Richmond, one of the most experienced SynCardia Certified Centers in the world. The surgery marked VCU Medical Center’s 75th Total Artificial Heart implant since becoming a SynCardia Certified Center in 2006.

“From January 2012 through the first seven months of 2013, there have been 230 implants of the Total Artificial Heart,” said Garippa. “This is nearly double the number of implants
