Date:9/10/2009

ATLANTA and LONDON, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CryoLife, Inc., (NYSE: CRY) an implantable biological medical device and cardiovascular tissue processing company, today announced the first clinical implant of its BioFoam(R) Surgical Matrix, which received CE mark approval in August 2009. BioFoam was used in a liver resection procedure following tumor removal as a supplemental measure to promote hemostasis (a complex process that stops bleeding) by sealing vessels.

"Despite advances in surgical technique, bleeding complications continue to be a problem in liver resection surgery and can be life-threatening," said Professor Brian Davidson, MD, FRCS, Professor of Surgery, Department of Surgery, Royal Free Hospital in London who performed the procedure on September 9.

CryoLife is conducting a controlled clinical launch of BioFoam at up to six centers in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Italy. The objectives of this 45-patient controlled launch, in which BioFoam is used as a surgical hemostatic adjunct in the open repair of liver parenchyma following liver resection and/or liver transplant surgery, are to (1) collect additional clinical data supporting the safety and performance of BioFoam and (2) further refine the optimal application technique.

"The clinical availability of BioFoam is another milestone in the company's corporate objective of providing world-class sur
