The DuraHeart LVAS features a small centrifugal pump that is implanted in a small pocket created underneath the abdominal muscle. When the pump is activated, the impeller is levitated by the electromagnets and its position is precisely controlled by position sensors to keep it centered within the blood chamber. Permanent magnets couple the impeller to the motor so when the motor spins, it causes the impeller to rotate and pump blood from the heart to the body. In its weakened state, the heart is not strong enough to supply sufficient blood for normal activities. The DuraHeart supplements the natural flow by pumping blood from the left ventricle to the aorta, increasing total flow to normal levels.

The development of the DuraHeart LVAS began in 1995 at Research & Development Center, Terumo Corporation, in Japan as a part of a Japanese National Project funded by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry. The project was moved from Japan to Ann Arbor, Michigan for product realization in 2000. The first human clinical trial was launched in 2004 in Europe and CE-mark was granted in 2007.

"It is truly gratifying to participate in the development and significant progress of the DuraHeart System that everyone at Terumo Heart and each one of our clinical partners has worked so hard to achieve," said Chisato Nojiri, M.D., Ph.D., Chairperson and Chief Medical Officer, Terumo Heart, Inc. "The implanting of the 100th patient is an exciting point along the road to bringing this important, next-generation technology to the global market, and the implanting of three devices in such a short period gives testimony to its benefit and the commitment and belief of cardiothoracic surgeons in Europe and the U.S. in its potential. We continue to receive excellent feedback from physicians and are working toward completion of enrollment and ultimat
