“We are grateful for the contribution we are making to the treatment of heart failure patients,” said William Pinon, President and CEO, Terumo Heart. “This is a significant milestone that further documents the importance and value of LVAS technology for its potential to improve the length and quality of patients’ lives.”

The DuraHeart LVAS is the first, third-generation rotary pump designed for long-term patient support that incorporates a centrifugal flow rotary pump with an active magnetically levitated impeller featuring three position sensors and magnetic coils that optimize blood flow, while minimizing device wear and tear. The DuraHeart LVAS is currently being studied in the U.S. in the DuraHeart Pivotal Trial for Bridge-to-Transplant, a multi-center, prospective, non-randomized study, involving 140 patients. The study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of the device in helping to sustain patients awaiting heart transplant who are at risk of death due to end-stage left ventricular failure. The DuraHeart LVAS carries a CE Mark and is currently available for sale in European countries. Additionally, the company has completed clinical trial enrollment for this device in Japan.
