German Patient Surpasses 5 Years of Support on DuraHeart™ Left Ventricular Assist Device
Date:7/19/2011

s. Gieseke is a prime example of how someone who was in declining health can lead a fulfilling life with end stage heart failure."

The DuraHeart LVAS is the latest-generation rotary blood pump designed for long-term patient support.  The system incorporates a centrifugal flow rotary pump with the magnetically levitated impeller. The pump features three position sensors and electromagnetic coils that suspend the impeller inside the pump chamber without a single contact point. The impeller's active magnetic levitation is designed to eliminate friction by allowing a wide gap between blood contacting surfaces, enabling blood to flow through the pump unimpeded in a smooth, non-turbulent fashion.

The DuraHeart LVAS carries a CE Mark and is currently available for sale in Japan and Europe.  DuraHeart is limited to investigational use only in the United States.  For more information about heart failure, Ventricular Assist Devices or the DuraHeart LVAS, visit www.terumoheart.com.

About Heart Failure

More than 22 million people suffer from heart failure worldwide with approximately one million new patients diagnosed annually. In the setting of an aging global population, heart failure is the number one reason for hospitalization.  The most severely ill patients need heart transplants in order to recover. More than 8,000 people worldwide are on the list of eligible candidates for heart transplants annually, but less than 3,000 receive a transplant each year.  A large number of people who suffer from severe heart failure do not qualify for transplantation due to other health issues. An alternative for these patients is access to artificial mechanical assist.
