e that the study endpoints are well designed and that the trial plan will facilitate enrollment."

"According to the American Heart Association, AF is estimated to affect more than 5.5 million people worldwide and is the leading cause of stroke. Due to the lack of AF treatment alternatives, it is important for AtriCure to work closely with the FDA to investigate potentially safer and more effective treatment alternatives for the millions of patients who suffer the debilitating effects of AF," said David J. Drachman, AtriCure's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe that the ABLATE clinical trial is another example of our unwavering commitment to build a great and enduring Company."

About AtriCure, Inc.

AtriCure, Inc. is a medical device company and a leader in developing, manufacturing and selling innovative cardiac surgical ablation systems designed to create precise lesions, or scars, in cardiac, or heart, tissue. Medical journals have described the adoption by leading cardiothoracic surgeons of the AtriCure Isolator(R) bipolar ablation system as a treatment alternative during open-heart surgical procedures to create lesions in cardiac tissue to block the abnormal electrical impulses that cause atrial fibrillation, or AF, a rapid, irregular quivering of the upper chambers of the heart. Additionally, medical journals and leading cardiothoracic surgeons have described the AtriCure Isolator(R) system as a promising treatment alternative for patients who may be candidates for sole-therapy minimally invasive procedures. AF affects more than 5.5 million people worldwide and predisposes them to a five-fold increased risk of stroke.

The FDA has cleared the AtriCure Isolator(R) bipolar ablation system, including the new Isolator Synergy(TM) ablation clamps and the AtriCure multifunctional bipolar Pen, for the ablation, or destruction, of cardiac tissue during surgical procedures. Additionally, the FDA has cleared the AtriCure Pen for
