Thoratec Reports Second Quarter Revenue Increase of 17 Percent
Date:8/3/2011

T)," said Gary F. Burbach, president and chief executive officer.

"We were particularly pleased with HeartMate II unit growth of 21 percent in the U.S. and 20 percent internationally, demonstrating healthy underlying market trends and HeartMate II's strong competitive position. This growth is being fueled by the compelling long-term patient outcomes achieved with the device, as well as the impact of our programs to facilitate referral activity, support capacity expansion at existing centers, and foster VAD programs at new centers," he added.

In addition, 99 centers in the U.S. have now received CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) certification for DT reimbursement, or an increase of nine versus the end of fiscal 2010.

Burbach said the company continues to invest in its long-term growth strategies.

For example, the full commercial launch of our sealed grafts for the HeartMate II, which occurred late in the first quarter, has gone very well, generating highly positive feedback from the clinical community in terms of ease of use, reduction in operating room time and reduced rates of peri-operative bleeding."

Also during the quarter, Thoratec announced a technology development agreement with WiTricity Corporation related to WiTricity's proprietary wireless resonant energy transfer technology for application in the field of mechanical circulatory support.
