Heart Assist Companies Position for Longevity

Executive Summary

Recently, all three major players in the ventricular assist device market have consolidated. In May of this year, Baxter International merged its Novacor VAD business into World Heart. Not long after, Thoratec Laboratories acquired the ThermoCardiosystems division of Thermo Electron. Each deal had a different primary motive, but the companies all share a common goal of positioning their businesses for a long and expensive development process.
