(Adds detail and background)
    PARIS, Jan 6 (Reuters) - French artificial heart maker
Carmat  ALCAR.PA  said on Wednesday that it was preparing for
the commercial launch of its products in the second quarter of
this year, in a European market which could have at least 2,000
patients annually.
    Carmat said its artificial heart would be marketed under the
brand name of "Aeson". Aeson would be launched commercially in
Germany in the second quarter, while the French market would be
targeted around the same time.
    "I am happy to confirm that we will be ready to start
selling our product as early as Q2 2021," said Carmat Chief
Executive Stephane Piat.
    Last month, Carmat got European regulatory approval for its
product, sending its shares higher.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2J40DU

in Carmat, while the ALIAD venture capital unit of Air Liquide
