ip position of the HeartMate II® LVAS (Left Ventricular Assist System)," said Gary F. Burbach, president and chief executive officer of Thoratec.

"We also experienced a strong quarter with respect to new center development, as we added eight HeartMate II centers globally, including six in the U.S. and two internationally. As of the end of the third quarter, we had 280 HeartMate II centers worldwide, including 141 in the U.S. and 139 internationally, versus a total of 254 at the end of fiscal 2010," he added.

"Our continued growth is being facilitated by our market development and clinical education programs. In addition, the ongoing flow of data is demonstrating compelling long-term outcomes in HeartMate II patients, including  data published recently in leading peer-reviewed journals," he said.

One of the recent data publications, which appeared in the October edition of The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, compared outcomes from nearly 1,500 commercial bridge-to-transplantation (BTT) HeartMate II patients with those of nearly 500 patients who participated in the HeartMate II BTT clinical trial. The findings included Kaplan-Meier survival of 89 percent at six months and 85 percent at one year for commercial patients. In addition, commercial patients experienced declines in most adverse events versus patients in the trial, with catastrophic events such as device replacement and stroke occurring in just one percent and six percent of patients, respectively. "This dataset demonstrates excellent and improving outcomes for HeartMate II patients in a real-world setting among a broad range of implanting centers," Burbach noted.

Burbach also commented on the company's acute surgical support franchise, including the acquisition of the Levitronix Medical business during the third quarter. The acquired business remains on track to add approximately $4.0 million of incremental product sales in 2011, including CentriMag® outside the U.S. an
