Terumo Heart, Inc. Reaches Clinical Milestone as the 100th Patient Worldwide Receives the DuraHeart(TM) Left Ventricular Assist System
Date:5/19/2009

scular Surgery, Heart and Diabetes Center NRW, University Hospital of the Ruhr-University of Bochum in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany. "The DuraHeart LVAS, which offers the latest technology, is both highly effective and very reliable. We believe the device is an excellent tool to treat our end-stage heart failure patients who are no longer capable of pumping enough blood to allow normal activity, and enables the patient to have a very good quality of life."

The DuraHeart LVAS is the first, third-generation rotary blood 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 DuraHeart Pivotal U.S. Trial for Bridge-to-Transplant, a multi-center, prospective, non-randomized study, involving 140 patients in up to 40 centers nationwide. 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.

"As the case drew closer, it was exciting to know that multiple centers globally had patients scheduled for implantation, but in the end, the time zone difference meant that our colleagues in Germany would implant before us and we did patient number 101 within a matter of hours," said Dr. Dean. "What matters most is that we are able to bring this state-of-the-art, life-sustaining technology to our patients awaiting heart transplant who are at risk of death due to end-stage left ventricular failure. We are excited to offer this leading-edge technology as one of the first centers in the co
