CardiacAssist, Inc. Announces Record Breaking Site Activity and Financial Results
Date:11/5/2008

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- CardiacAssist, Inc. announced that it reached a new high of more than 75 sites with the TandemHeart System performing at least one TandemHeart case during the third quarter of 2008. In addition, the quarter ending September 30th showed the highest year on year growth in case activity with a leap of 64 %. Revenue and income also showed significant increase of 70 % and 497 %. Through nine months of 2008, CardiacAssist has also set records in revenues, net income and cash flow by wide margins.

The TandemHeart is often selected for its high net flow rate of up to 5 lpm in the Cath Lab or up to 8 lpm in the OR as well as its flexibility and rapid deployment potential. Many centers are implementing the TandemHeart as part of their standard of care especially when the traditional IABP and medical therapy is deemed inadequate. When considering valve procedures and right heart cases that can not be supported by any other devices, the TandemHeart is the only percutaneous solution and has been used by more than 40 centers in this way.

More than 130 hospitals worldwide now use the TandemHeart System in the Cath Lab and/or Operating Room for extracorporeal circulatory support.

There are a variety of FDA cleared devices that provide extracorporeal circulatory support, but all others offer less than half the net flow and hemodynamic support of the TandemHeart. The TandemHeart is the only 5 lpm net flow, percutaneous "extracorporeal circulatory support" device approved by the FDA for sale in the U.S. Other devices including Impella 2.5 are labeled by the FDA to be used for "partial circulatory support" with less than 2.5 lpm net flow.

Many TandemHeart Centers are boldly moving ahead in saving lives and expanding the effectiveness of their circulatory support program. There are currently 16 Centers that have completed 20 or more cases. Not only are they recognized names such as Texas Heart Institute, Brigham & Wom
