r of 2008 increased 17 percent to $13.7 million compared to $11.7 million in the second quarter of 2007. Tissue processing revenues in the first six months of 2008 increased 10 percent to $27.1 million compared to $24.7 million in the first six months of 2007. Tissue processing revenues increased primarily due to increased demand for the Company's cardiac and vascular processed tissues, the introduction of the CryoValve(R) SG pulmonary heart valve and, to a lesser extent, price increases, partially offset by a decline in orthopaedic tissue processing revenues.

Combined cardiac and vascular tissue processing revenues in the second quarter of 2008 increased 28 percent to $13.4 million compared to $10.5 million in the second quarter of 2007. Combined cardiac and vascular tissue processing revenues in the first six months of 2008 increased 23 percent to $26.5 million compared to $21.6 million in the first six months of 2007.

Revenues from the distribution of CryoValve SG pulmonary heart valves were $1.4 million and $1.6 million, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008.

Orthopaedic tissue processing revenues in the second quarter of 2008 decreased 76 percent to $297,000 compared to $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2007. Orthopaedic tissue processing revenues in the first six months of 2008 decreased 80 percent to $624,000 compared to $3.1 million in the first six months of 2007. These revenue declines were anticipated as the Company discontinued procuring and processing orthopaedic tissue in the first quarter of 2007 pursuant to the exchange and service agreement signed with a third party in December of 2006.

BioGlue(R) Surgical Adhesive revenues were $13.0 million for the second quarter of 2008 compared to $10.9 million in the second quarter of 2007, an increase of 19 percent. BioGlue revenues were $24.9 million for the first six months of 2008 compared to $22.1 million in the first six months of 2007, an increase of 13 percent.

U.S. BioGlue revenues were $9.1 million and $7.7 million in the second quarter of 2008 and 2007, respectively. U.S. BioGlue revenues were $17.7 million and $16.0 million in the first six months of 2008 and 2007, respectively. International BioGlue revenues were $3.9 million and $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2008 and 2007, respectively. International BioGlue revenues were $7.2 million and $6.1 million in the first six months of 2008 and 2007, respectively.

Other implantable medical device revenues for the second quarter of 2008 were $308,000, compared to $226,000 in the second quarter of 2007. Other implantable medical device revenues for the first six months of 2008 were $401,000 compared to $458,000 in the first six months of 2007. Other implantable medical device revenues in the second quarter and first six months of 2008 included $177,000 for Hemostase MPH(R), which was added to the CryoLife product portfolio in the second quarter of 2008.

Total product and tissue processing gross margins were 66 percent in the second quarter of 2008 compared to 61 percent in the second quarter of 2007. Total product and tissue processing gross margins were 65 percent in the first six months of 2008 compared to 61 percent in the first six months of 2007.

Tissue processing gross margins in the second quarter of 2008 were 46 percent compared to 40 percent in the second quarter of 2007. Tissue processing gross margins in the first six months of 2008 were 46 percent compared to 41 percent in the first six months of 2007. Tissue processing gross margins improved in 2008 compared to 2007 primarily as a result of fee increases and a favorable tissue mix in 2008.

General, administrative, and marketing expenses in the second quarter of 2008 were $12.4 million compared to $10.8 million in the second quarter of 2007. General, administrative, and marketing expenses in the second quarters of 2008 and 2007 include benefits of $610,000 and $490,000, respectively, related to the adjustment of reserves for product liability losses.

General, administrative, and marketing expenses in the first six months of 2008 were $24.4 million compared to $23.2 million in the first six months of 2007. General, administrative, and marketing expenses in the first half of 2008 and 2007 include benefits of $530,000 and $505,000, respectively, related to the adjustment of reserves for product liability losses.

The increase in general, administrative, and marketing expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008 was primarily due to increases in marketing expenses. These expenses included personnel costs, corporate advertising, and promotional materials to support the Company's expanding tissue service and product offerings and revenue growth. Additionally, there were increases in stock compensation expense over the prior year periods.

Research and development expenses were $1.3 million and $1.0 million in the second quarters of 2008 and 2007, respectively. Research and development expenses were $2.8 million and $2.0 million in the first six months of 2008 and 2007, respectively. Research and development spending in 2008 primarily focused on the Company's SynerGraft(R) products and tissues, protein hydrogel technologies, and research on cold storage and preservation of internal organs.

As of June 30, 2008, the Company had $17.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, of which $1.8 million was received from the U.S. Department of Defense as advance funding for the development of BioFoam protein hydrogel technology for use on the battlefield and $5.0 million was designated as long-term restricted money market funds due to a financial covenant requirement under the Company's credit agreement.

"CryoLife's many life-saving services and products have achieved dominant positions in the field of cardiac reconstruction. The clinical results achieved by these products and services have become known throughout the surgical community resulting in increasing demand and use by the cardiovascular surgeons we serve," stated Steven G. Anderson, president and chief executive officer.

Financial Guidance

The Company's GAAP revenues are composed of product and tissue processing revenues plus other revenues. The Company now expects product and tissue processing revenues for the full year of 2008 to be in the middle to upper end of its previously announced range of revenue guidance, which is between $102.0 million and $107.0 million. Other revenues for 2008 may reach between $700,000 and $900,000, primarily related to funding received from the Department of Defense in connection with the development of BioFoam(R). The actual amount of other revenues is largely dependent upon actual expenses incurred related to the development of BioFoam.

The Company expects tissue processing revenues to be between $53.0 million and $56.0 million and BioGlue revenues to be between $47.0 million and $49.0 million for the full year of 2008. Other implantable medical device revenues are expected to be approximately $2.0 million in 2008, which includes an estimated $1.0 million in revenues from the distribution of Hemostase MPH.

The Company expects general, administrative, and marketing expenses of between $49.0 million and $51.0 million, and research and development expenses of between $6.0 million and $8.0 million for the full year of 2008. The research and development expectations include an estimated range of between $700,000 and $900,000 to be funded by the Department of Defense in connection with the development of BioFoam.
