CorMatrix Receives Carotid Artery Repair Indication for its CorMatrix® ECM®
Date:10/12/2011

ATLANTA, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CorMatrix Cardiovascular, Inc., a medical device company dedicated to developing and delivering unique extracellular matrix (ECM) biomaterial devices that harness the body's innate ability to repair damaged cardio-vascular tissue, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted the company 510(k) clearance to market its CorMatrix® ECM® for Carotid Repair, which utilizes the company's proprietary ECM Technology.

The company's platform ECM Technology, an extracellular matrix biomaterial which provides a natural bio-scaffold enabling a patient's own host cells to repopulate and repair damaged tissues, is currently FDA cleared for pericardial closure and cardiac tissue repair. This recent 510(k) clearance adds to the CorMatrix product line with a new design and indication for vascular reconstruction and repair of the carotid artery, including patch closure following endarterectomy and suture line buttressing.

"The peripheral vascular surgery community is quite familiar with the use of the CorMatrix Technology by cardiac surgeons for pericardial reconstruction and cardiovascular repair. We are excited to have a unique CorMatrix material, with several potentially advantageous properties, now available for use in carotid endarterectomy, " said W. Darrin Clouse, MD, FACS, Director, Northern California Federal Vascular Surgery.

The CorMatrix material is a naturally occurring bio-scaffold, which has been used at more than 500 hospitals across the U.S. and successfully implanted in over 40,000 patients. The unique CorMatrix material helps stimulate tissue growth by providing a location where the patient's cells can migrate and integrate, eventually creating new tissue in place of the CorMatrix ECM.

"We believe the unique properties of our CorMatrix material provide a new and vital alternative to current approaches in carotid artery repair. Having received numerous inq
