CryoLife Receives Humanitarian Use Device Designation for SynerGraft(R) Processed Human Aortic Heart Valves
Date:10/6/2009

ATLANTA, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CryoLife, Inc., (NYSE: CRY) an implantable biological medical device and cardiovascular tissue processing company, today announced that it has received a Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) designation from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its CryoValve® SG aortic human heart valve. The HUD designation is the first step in obtaining a Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) for the CryoValve SG aortic human heart valve, which is processed with the Company's proprietary SynerGraft® technology. An approved HDE would allow the Company to market the CryoValve SG aortic human heart valve. The patented SynerGraft technology serves as the foundation for the next generation of implantable biological tissues and is designed to remove allogeneic donor cells and cellular remnants from the valve without compromising the integrity of the underlying collagen matrix.

An HUD is a medical device intended to benefit patients in the treatment or diagnosis of a disease or condition that affects or is manifested in fewer than 4,000 individuals in the United States (U.S.) per year. An HUD can be granted when no comparable device with the same intended use is marketed through the premarket approval (PMA) process or the premarket notification (510(k)) process.

The CryoValve SG aortic human heart valve is intended to be used for the replacement of diseased, damaged, malformed or malfunctioning native or prosthetic aortic valves in children from 0 to 21 years of age. The Company estimates that up to 1,500 children per year could benefit from this technology if the Company is successful in obtaining an HDE, which is the next step in making these valves commercially available
