Realheart Presents Positive Hematological Data at the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs 70th Annual Conference in Baltimore

Västerås, 10 April 2024 – Scandinavian Real Heart AB (publ) announces today that the company will participate in the annual conference organised by the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs (ASAIO). The conference brings together the world's leading scientists, clinicians, engineers and entrepreneurs in the development of artificial organs. Representatives from Realheart will attend the conference, which takes place in Baltimore, Maryland, USA between 29 May and 1 June.

During the conference, new study data will be presented that strengthens the company's previous results, which show that the company's artificial heart, Realheart® TAH, has a low damaging effect on red blood cells (hemolysis) compared to today's market-dominant heart pump system. The new results are based on in-depth analyses that include several blood components and further confirm that Realheart® TAH causes a significantly lower degree of blood damage.

ASAIO is an annual conference that brings together clinicians, scientists, engineers and companies involved in the research and development of artificial organs. The conference is also attended by representatives from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other public institutions.

Realheart will participate in the Bioengineering1 session, Thursday 30 June at 15.20, to present the scientific abstract "In Vitro Human Blood Damage Profile of the SynCardia TAH and the Realheart® TAH in a Full Body Circulation Test Rig".
