HeartWare develops and manufactures miniaturized implantable heart
pumps, or Left Ventricular Assist Devices, designed to treat patients
suffering from advanced heart failure. The Company is developing smaller
and less invasive pumps, which it believes will be the key to unlocking the
potential of a large and underserved market. The HeartWare(R) LVAS is a
full-output pump designed to be implanted in the chest, avoiding the
abdominal surgery generally required to implant competing devices. The pump
is currently the subject of an international clinical trial involving five
investigational centres in Europe and Australia. A clinical trial in the
U.S. is expected to commence shortly following receipt of conditional
approval of an IDE in early May 2008.
