Angiotech Pharmaceuticals announces FDA 510(k) clearance of the Option(TM) Inferior Vena Cava Filter
Date:6/8/2009

VANCOUVER, June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Angiotech Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANPI, TSX: ANP) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance for the Option(TM) Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filter in the United States, for use in both permanent and retrievable indications. Angiotech holds exclusive worldwide rights to market and distribute the Option IVC Filter, which it obtained in a license agreement with privately held Rex Medical, LP (Rex Medical), as previously announced in March 2008.

Option is specifically designed for use as both a permanent or temporary implant (in temporary, or retrievable, indications, a physician may later perform a second surgical procedure to remove the Option IVC Filter if necessary or where mandated clinically).

"This important FDA clearance of the Option IVC Filter continues Angiotech's mission of offering the most highly innovative technology solutions to our physician customers and their patients," said Dr. William Hunter, President and CEO of Angiotech. "We are excited to commence commercial sales of Option through our dedicated Interventional Sales Team in the very near future. We believe the flexibility to use the Option IVC Filter in both permanent and retrievable indications, with clinical study data indicating 92% retrieval success, and a retrieval at up to 175 days post-implantation, provides Option the opportunity to be the market leading product in PE prevention."

According to market analysis conducted by Millennium Research Group, the U.S. market for IVC filters was approximately $200 million in 2007 (with approxima
