  Item 5.02       Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers  

On September 6, 2010, the Board of Directors of Bioheart, Inc. (the "Company") appointed Samuel S. Ahn, M.D. to serve as a director of the Company. Dr. Ahn previously served as a member of the Company's Board of Directors from January 2001 thru September 2008. Dr Ahn was one of the early pioneers in developing the field of endovascular surgery by coordinating and leading the first endovascular training courses in the US and Europe as well as developing some of the endovascular devices and techniques currently in clinical use today. He is a former Professor of Surgery in the Division of Vascular Surgery at UCLA, where he was also the Director of the Endovascular Surgery Program. In 2006 Dr. Ahn founded Vascular Management Associates, Inc., a consulting and management firm that sets up outpatient endovascular centers across the US. VMA has set up 8 such sites to date and is on track to set up two more this year. In 2008, he co-founded Wright-Ahn Technology, LLC, to develop and commercialize endovascular devices. In 2009, he co-founded MediBank International, LLC, a global healthcare IT Company. Dr. Ahn graduated from the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, and received his general and vascular surgical residency training at UCLA. He also earned his MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management in August, 2004. Dr. Ahn sits on five vascular journal editorial boards, and has published over 120 peer-reviewed manuscripts, 50 book chapters, and five textbooks, including the first and definitive textbook on Endovascular Surgery. During the past eighteen years he has consulted for over 50 biomedical companies, both new and established, and has authored over 15 patents. Dr. Ahn's experience as a medical professional, together with his experience with us, makes him well-qualified to serve on, and a valuable member of, the Company's Board of Directors.
