View Additional ProfilesLAKE FOREST, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/19/09 -- TRIMEDYNE, INC. (OTCBB: TMED) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.

Revenues for the current quarter were $1,632,000, an increase of 7.4% from revenues of $1,519,000 for the prior year's quarter. The $113,000 increase in revenues was due to higher revenues from sales of fiber optic devices and service and rentals, offset by a small decrease in sales of lasers. The Company had a net loss of $345,000 or $0.02 per share for the current quarter, compared to a loss of $292,000 or $0.02 per share for the prior year quarter.

Commenting on the financial results for the quarter, Marvin P. Loeb, Sc.D., Chairman of Trimedyne, said, "We are pleased with the 7.4% increase in revenues in the current quarter over the year ago quarter. However, we are not pleased that our net loss for the current quarter was $345,000, although it is down from the loss of $445,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2008. Administrative and R&D expenses, testing and scaling up for production of our new side firing optical fiber were responsible for a substantial part of the increase in our costs during the quarter and are expected to continue into the next quarter."

We have developed a new side firing optical fiber for use with our 80 watt Holmium Lasers for the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia or BPH, commonly called an enlarged prostate. We plan to commence a limited marketing release of the new fiber under our VaporMAX® trademark in June 2009, barring any unforeseen problems, with a wider release to follow.

BPH is a condition which affects an estimated 50% of men over age 55 and an increasing percentage of men at older ages. Worldwide, approximately 1.2 million men are presently treated each year in a surgical procedure using radiofrequency (RF) or laser energy to vaporize excess prostate tissue which is obstructing urine flow. The laser procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and minimizes the adverse effects of the RF surgical procedure, which include bleeding and infections and the risks of a blood transfusion, impotence and incontinence.

We have developed a similar side firing optical fiber which will be marketed in the U.S. and Japan by Boston Scientific Corporation and in other countries throughout the world by Lumenis, Ltd. of Yokneam, Israel, under Lumenis' DuraMAX trademark. The DuraMAX(TM) side firing fiber will be used with Lumenis' large, worldwide installed base of 80 and 100 watt Holmium Lasers for the treatment of BPH.

Marketing of the new DuraMAX(TM) Fiber by Boston Scientific and Lumenis will commence when Boston Scientific has completed its audit of our manufacturing process and quality system, which is expected to take 4 to 5 months. Boston Scientific has not yet advised us when this audit will be commenced.

Trimedyne manufactures proprietary Holmium lasers and patented fiber optic laser devices for a variety of minimally invasive surgical procedures, many of which are performed on an outpatient basis at substantially less cost than conventional surgery.
