The Ohio State University Medical Center Implants Two Patients with Sunshine Heart's C-Pulse(TM) Heart Assist System Under FDA-Approved Clinical Trial

SYDNEY, and TUSTIN, Calif., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunshine Heart (ASX: SHC), a global medical device company focused on innovative heart assist technologies, announced today that The Ohio State University Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio has successfully completed the first two implants of the Company's C-Pulse(TM) heart assist system under a 20 person clinical trial approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
