Abstract

ABIOMED is engaged in the research, development, manufacture and sale of cardiac assist and heart replacement technologies. Their products include the ABIOMED BVS 5000, cardiac support system, that provides a patient's failing heart with full circulatory assistance while allowing the heart to rest, heal and recover its function. The BVS 5000 has been approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a bridge-to-recovery device for the treatment of all patients with potentially reversible heart failure. ABIOMED is currently developing the AbioCor Implantable Replacement Heart, a totally implantable, battery-powered heart replacement device intended for patients with irreparably damaged hearts who are at risk of death due to acute myocardial infarction, chronic ischemic disease or some form of end-stage congestive heart failure, but whose vital organs otherwise remain viable.
