ATS Forcefield Anti-platelet Technology Continues to Demonstrate Positive Results
Date:11/3/2008

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ATS Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATSI), manufacturer and marketer of state-of-the-art cardiac surgery products and services, today announced completion of the final feasibility milestone in the development of the ATS Forcefield(TM) technology. The animal feasibility study has been completed with positive results regarding the inhibition of platelet adhesion on mechanical heart valve prostheses.

This technology has been the focus of presentations at the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs Conference (ASAIO) in June and at the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgeons (EACTS) meeting in September. Previously, Dr. Mark Slaughter, Professor and Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the University of Louisville and Jewish Hospital presented his findings in an acute human trial with excellent results. Adding to this foundation of positive results, ATS has just completed a 90-day animal feasibility study that has demonstrated the longer term sustained effect of Forcefield on a functioning mechanical heart valve implanted in the mitral position. Examination of the surviving animals confirmed essentially zero presence of platelets on the surface of the heart valves after 90 days without the use of anti-coagulation treatment.

The combination of in vitro human blood results, acute human study results, and now this longer-term functioning heart valve in an animal model supports our view that the novel Forcefield technology will prove effective and broadly applicable. The next steps will be in preparation for human feasibility trials
