Date:7/28/2009

SYDNEY, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunshine Heart (ASX: SHC), a global medical device company focused on innovative heart assist technologies, announced today that the first two patients implanted with the C-Pulse device in April 2009 at The Ohio State University Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio have successfully completed their 3 month follow-up evaluation.

The next milestone for these patients will be evaluation at the 6 month time frame."

Don Rohrbaugh, CEO of Sunshine Heart, commented, "We are very encouraged by these patients' response with the C-Pulse device. We look forward to generating additional data from this study to support our global regulatory strategy. We are particularly pleased to report the Company received reimbursement of $108,000 from The Ohio State University for these two patients; the first such revenue for Sunshine Heart."
