Other key findings of the study included data: – 51 % or 68 of the study patients were transplanted and three additional patients recovered sufficient function of their natural heart to the device removed tadalafila . – 22 %, or 29 of the study, patients were supported by the device at 180 days or more, and more suitable for transplantation. – 25 % or 33 of the patients did not meet the primary endpoint, including 25, died while supported on the device. There were no reported mechanical pump failure. – The level of adverse events in the major categories was lower than reported in previous studies with pulsatile devices. There were no pocket infections and only 18 percutaneous lead infections. Compared to the results of previous BTT trial for HeartMate VE, decreased the rate of percutaneous lead infection events by about 90 % and the incidence of bleeding requiring follow-up surgery by about 40 % by about 40 %. The rate of stroke by more than 50 %, in a six – neurological events declined by about 60 %. We agree with the data presented today , and what results results for many patients with advanced heart failure and the clinicians treating them forward, said Gary F. Burbach, president and chief executive officer of Thoratec.

The study included 133 patients enrolled in 26 centers from March 2005 to May 2006, and the data reported reflect patient follow-up by the end of December 2006. Thoratec completed its premarket approval filing an approval for the BTT indication at the end of 2006. Miller reported that patients 100, or 75 % of the the cohort study, the primary endpoint, which was a heart transplant or survival at 180 days while remaining eligible for transplantation met. The data also showed that the study met or exceeded the objectives for the secondary endpoints, including the incidence of adverse events, improved functional status and to increase the quality of life. ‘The results of this study demonstrate that the HeartMate II not only provides reliable, long-term circulatory support, but also improves the quality of life for these patients,”finalize is the first continuous circulatory support device, a U.S. Study, we used the results very satisfied and look forward to the completion of the other arm of the study a larger a larger cohort of patients who are not eligible for transplant, ‘he added.
