    You might want to consider that Donnenfeld is part of the trio of "Lindstrom, Kim, and Donnenfeld" who are most likely all gOMER "paid consultants" -- guys who would probably hump their own grandmother for a buck. Also consider that Donnenfeld is also on the board of "Novabay Paharmaceuticals" -- currently trading at 69 CENTS -- and he probably contributes no more to that company than a phone call every quarter to collect his director's fee.

    Omidria

    Omridia -- IF ordered -- will be mixed by the hospital pharmacist and delivered to the eye doc in the surgery suite. I say "if" because "The Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC) for OMIDRIA is $465 per single-use vial," and I believe that any self-respecting eye doc will find it patently absurd to force the health care system to pay $465 for 25 CENTS worth of generic drugs -- ESPECIALLY when you consider that eye surgery has been doing perfectly well WITHOUT it.

    ...you have to forgive him...SSH hit a NEW 52 week LOW today and that has exacerbated his already serious case of "bagholderitis" -- a disease which tends to leave its victims rather discombobulated.

  • rrtzrealmd rrtzrealmd Dec 8, 2014 12:12 PM Flag

    Wow! Three posts in less than ten minutes! Sounds like an acute exacerbation of "bagholderitis"! Too bad there's no "cure"!

    ...uhhhh -- cuz no one is willing to pay for it? At least that's what the CEO said in the conference call. Insurance companies refuse to reimburse; finance departments of research hospitals refuse to implant without GUARANTEE of reimbursement; CEO said SSH can't guarantee reimbursement because it couldn't succeed if it has to pay "200,000...250,000, uncapped costs" that are associated with managing each patient through the study. He also said Medicare can't help since the average age of the patients in the trial is somewhere south of 65!

    Are you familiar with the old saying about "up a sh_t creek without a paddle"?

  • rrtzrealmd rrtzrealmd Dec 4, 2014 11:33 AM Flag

    ...hmmmmm...one could argue that "HF patients, PI and Staff at sites are not interested in" c-pulse either judging from the THREE verifiable implants in the YEAR and a HALF the trial has been running.

    Certainly, insurance companies aren't interested in it -- as demonstrated by their REFUSING to reimburse the device! The question now is HOW will the trial be funded. The research hospitals want guarantees of reimbursement which Rosa says SSH can't afford! No money means no implants means no data to show the FDA . In other words, SSH is effectively a "beached whale" at this point -- and you know what happens ultimately to beached whales, don't you?

    Begging your pardon, but I actually DID address the "33% improvement" in my own special way:

    Funny, isn't it, that after those first 5 or 6 patients from Germany there HASN'T been ANOTHER? ZERO from Germany LAST quarter! ZERO from Germany THIS quarter!! When WAS the last patient implanted in Germany?

    On top of that, not ONE stinkin' c-pulse SOLD in Germany DESPITE EU approval TWO YEARS ago and DESPITE German NUB reimbursement approval a YEAR ago!

    Fat lot of good Dr. Hotz's EF success did -- wouldn't you agree?"

    Since, apparently, NO ONE in Germany CARES about Hotz's "33% improvement," why should I?

    However, if you WANT more, then consider that Aggarwal and Kao reported that TWO THIRDS of THEIR six patient showed NO significant improvement in EF after c-pulse. What's that all about? Does Hotz get better "consulting fees"?

    Also consider how ODD it is that, despite Dr. Hotz's "success," SSH does NOT include EF in EITHER the "pivotal" US trial OR in the European trial! I would think an OBJECTIVE measure like that would impress cardiologists and maybe attract more referrals.

    Of course, given the current insurance refusal to reimburse DEBACLE, I suppose referrals no longer matter much!

    Hotz??? Oh, you're referring to Dr. Hotz from Germany! The guy who is a "paid consultant" for SSH and who gets ALL of his travel expenses PAID FOR by SSH?

    Yeah! Funny, isn't it, that after those first 5 or 6 patients from Germany there HASN'T been ANOTHER? ZERO from Germany LAST quarter! ZERO from Germany THIS quarter!! When WAS the last patient implanted in Germany?

    On top of that, not ONE stinkin' c-pulse SOLD in Germany DESPITE EU approval TWO YEARS ago and DESPITE German NUB reimbursement approval a YEAR ago!

    Fat lot of good Dr. Hotz's EF success did -- wouldn't you agree?

    Haven't heard from him much lately -- was he the "personnel" change in Europe SSH tried to blame for NO European implants in the quarterly report? Yeah, cutting off his cash flow tends to quiet down a doc.

    C-Pulse Is Certainly A Positive Innovation

    by bigsmartsta Nov 28, 2014 12:57 PM
    rrtzrealmd rrtzrealmd Dec 3, 2014 2:44 PM Flag

    Uhhhh...no! YOU said c-pulse was a "positive innovation" and I said it, no, wasn't and presented my arguments. YOU countered by CLAIMING that its "no blood contact" was an advantage and I presumed THAT was what YOU found "innovative."

    But OBVIOUSLY, an "innovation" in something that DOESN'T WORK ain't much of an "innovation," now, is it?

    Before Rosa came to SSH, he was CEO of a cow teat catheter company!! Woo-woo! Great experience there! Oh, wait he DOES have "percutaneous" VAD experience! He was VP of marketing for "A-Med Systems"! Unfortunately -- SURPRISE, SURPRISE!! -- it went BELLY UP!! Now THAT "experience" will definitely be helpful at SOME point in SSH's future! HAW!

    "37 patients enrolled"??? WHOOPEE!! Too bad the FDA DON'T count no stinkin' "enrollees"! How many are actually IMPLANTED? After over a YEAR and a HALF, ONLY THREE can be verified! Gee, only need ONE HUNDRED NINETY ONE MORE!

    "no issue with reimbursement"??? Did you hear the conference call? A transcript of it is on seekingalpha -- READ IT! Straight out of Rosa's sub-90 IQ mouth: insurance companies ARE REFUSING to reimburse and that includes BC/BS; finance departments of research hospitals ARE REFUSING to allow implants until they are GUARANTEED reimbursement; SSH CAN'T reimburse because they COULDN'T be successful with "200,000...250,000...uncapped costs;" Medicare is effectively USELESS since the average age of the trial patients is SOMEWHERE south of 65! In other words, AIN'T NO ONE
    going to pay for the trial!

    The ONE thing he DIDN'T mention was ANY SOLUTION to the problem. He said they would "TRY" and negotiate! Negotiate WHAT? A YEAR and a HALF into the trial and NOW the DIMWITS haven't the FOGGIEST notion how they'll pay for it!

    What kind of MORONS start a 400 patient trial without knowing FOR SURE how it will ultimately be funded?

  • rrtzrealmd rrtzrealmd Dec 2, 2014 6:13 PM Flag

    "...hospitals don't commit all this unless there are real possibilities..."??? My goodness but what that isn't he most intelligent thing you've probably EVER said! Yes, indeedy, hospitals are ALWAYS looking for "possibilities" for MAKING MONEY! But guess what happens when those "possibilities" vanish! Then SO DO THE HOSPITALS! Just like ROSA said in the conference call! Insurance companies refusing to pay means NO MONEY for the hospital, and since "money talks, BS walks," guess who gets to go hiking! That's right! SSH and its stupid device!

    Well, please, allow me to correct you just a little more!

    First, for reasons I can only imagine, SHH has NOWHERE reported EXACTLY how many implants they've done in the US trial. The ONLY available evidence comes from the THREE where they have reported the revenue from the sale of the device. I believe there are, in fact, ONLY 3 implants so far and that SSH has had to pay for THOSE!

    Second, per the December 2014 corporate presentation which is NOW available:

    "German reimbursement – application submitted 10/2014
    • NUB assigned Status 4
    • OPS (Procedure code) established unique to C-Pulse
    • 5-376.9 permanent implantable extra aortic cardiac assist device
    • .90 Implantation.91 change of the full system
    • .92 isolated change of the connecting line
    • .93 isolated change of epicardial ECG-electrode and connecting line
    • .94 removal"

    That is EXACTLY what they had before. ALL they are trying to do is RENEW the SAME EXACT THING they had BEFORE! Got that, moron?

    Third, OF COURSE having to pay for implants won't slow down "enrollment" because enrollment DOESN'T COST ANYTHING!!
    ON THE OTHER HAND, actually DOING the implants DOES cost money! Insurance companies say they WON'T pay, but the research hospitals are demanding SOMEBODY pay! And Rosa HIMSELF said during the conference call that SSH could NEVER be successful if it had to pick up the "200,000...250,000...uncapped costs." So that leaves the trial up the proverbial "sh_t creek"!

    Got that? ENROLLMENT adds up to a total of "jack" and "sh_t"! It's the IMPLANTS that matter and so far it appears that the worthless company has managed to do only THREE in a YEAR and a HALF!

    "senile"???? Look who's talking! You're trying to "pump" SSH and you're posting articles showing how the device KILLED a patient by causing sepsis secondary a driveline infection! Shorts must LOVE you! HAW!

    "FDA allows interim analysis"??? Who cares? Apparently, per Rosa, NO ONE is willing to pay for the implants and follow up care! NO implants means NO data which means NOTHING to "interim" analyze!

    "German reimbursement..." is simply RENEWAL of the "German reimbursement" they ALREADY have. Given that there were NO implants in Germany or even all of Europe last quarter and that, per Rosa, there may not be ANY this quarter as well, "German reimbursement" is hardly anything to get excited about.

    "1st quarter enrollment"???? Who CARES? The FDA certainly doesn't! On the other hand, how many IMPLANTS will have been done by then? In over a year and a half, there are only THREE verifiable implants and it appears that SSH paid or helped pay for those. But now NOBODY -- including SSH per Rosa -- is willing to accept responsibility for all the costs of implants and follow up care and Rosa even warned everyone that there may not be ANY implants this quarter for the US trial!

    Given all that, I'd say SSH currently isn't worth a pile of fresh dog manure!

    "...stockholders don't see block buster..."??? Yeah, and THEIR stockholders also don't have to "see" some dual personality MORON talking to himself all day long and pumping SSH by posting articles about how SSH's product KILLED a patient courtesy of sepsis caused by a c-pulse driveline infection! Aren't they LUCKY!!!

    HAW!!!

  • rrtzrealmd rrtzrealmd Dec 1, 2014 7:35 AM Flag

    Hey! I got an idea!! Maybe you should call SHH and get'em to include in the "presentation" that guy you "boasted" about earlier! You know! The one you pointed out that was killed by his c-pulse after he got septic from a driveline infection!!! No doubt a GREAT selling point! HAW!!! I swear, you and Rosa would make a great tag team!!! Be like Abbott and Costello!!! No, no!! Better yet! "STUPID and EVEN STUPIDER"!!!! HAW!!!

    By the way, given the remarkable resemblance between your posts and those "bigsmart--whatchamaccallhim," is it fair to infer a touch of bipolar disorder or some other psychiatric ailment at work? HAW!

    Hey, thanks! I was going to copy and paste that in response to your post pumping c-pulse by telling everyone how it killed some poor guy courtesy of a driveline infection that led to sepsis! You saved me the hassle -- kudos!

    Which, granted, is kinda sick! But at least I'm not trying to pump SSH by broadcasting how effective it is at KILLING people!
