VITAL HEART SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES SALES TO NEW SCANDINAVIAN DISTRIBUTOR FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER 1992

 BOSTON/MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Vital Heart Systems (NASDAQ: VHRT) announced today that three SV-4000 variance cardiographs were sold to the company's Scandinavian distributor in the fourth quarter of 1992.
 Vital Heart Systems previously announced that Synectic, A.B. would become its first European distributor in September 1992. They are the company's distributor of the SV 4000 variance cardiograph in Finland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden. These sales bring the total number of units in Sweden to five.
 "We are very pleased to realize immediate results from our first entrance into the European marketplace. Vital Heart Systems is actively working on the expansion of our European distributor network to include Great Britain, Italy and Germany during the first half of 1993. In addition, the company is negotiating with distributors in Japan," said David L. Printy, chairman, president and CEO. "Clinical studies using the variance cardiograph are ongoing at the Karolinska Institut, a prestigious research center and teaching university in Stockholm, Sweden."
 The company believes that the high incidence of heart disease in Scandinavia and the need for cost containment within their national health care system make it an exciting new market for the company's technology.
 This announcement follows the company's increased focus on expansion of its sales and marketing programs.
 Vital Heart Systems, Inc., with offices in Beverly, Mass., and Minneapolis, manufactures and markets the variance cardiograph, a non- invasive, stress-free, diagnostic instrument to aid physicians in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. The stock of Vital Heart Systems, Inc. is traded on the over-the-counter market under the NASDAQ symbol VHRT.
