Investment summary

Carmat recently announced that it has implanted nine of its physiologic heart replacement therapies (PHRT) since July, six of which were commercial implants (under the brand name Aeson in the EU) while three were part of the early feasibility study (EFS) in the United States. These nine implants are associated with approximately €2m in product revenue, which will be booked in H221. Importantly, due to the PHRT’s profile, which features autoregulation, pulsatility and hemocompatibility, additional centres are expected to become commercially active in the coming months, which we believe should help drive revenue growth.

Industry outlook

The Carmat artificial heart is being developed as a permanent replacement or destination therapy for chronic biventricular heart failure or acute myocardial infarction patients who do not have access to a human donor heart. Despite the high prevalence of stage IV heart failure in the EU and the United States (c 500,000 patients).
