Press Release 27 October, 2022
Realheart announces it has performed a third implantation in sheep to test the clinical version of Realheart TAH – the version that will also be used in clinical trials expected to start in 2024. 3-4 more implantations are now planned in the series.
The surgery was performed in an animal laboratory in Belgium by the same surgical team as in previous trials: Dr Dilek Gürsoy and Dr Joeri van Puyvelde, led by Professor Bart Meyns. Once again, the implantation went quickly and progress was made, including the optimal placement of the pump.
''I am very pleased to confirm that the series continues and that more implantations are now scheduled and I look forward to reporting the results once all the analyses are complete'' says Ina Laura Perkins, CEO of Realheart.
