Leading Cardiovascular Surgeons Gather from Around the World to Share Ross Procedure Survival Data, Techniques at 2nd Annual Summit
Date:9/21/2009

ATLANTA, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CryoLife, Inc. (NYSE: CRY) -- Elite cardiovascular surgeons from around the world will travel to suburban Atlanta this week for the two-day Ross Summit to review and discuss current peer-reviewed data relating to the survival advantage of the Ross Procedure and to practice the technical nuances required to perform this heart surgery successfully.

The Ross Procedure is a type of specialized aortic valve surgery in which the patient's diseased aortic valve is replaced with his or her own pulmonary valve. The pulmonary valve can then be replaced with a cryopreserved human pulmonary valve.

Nine peer-reviewed articles regarding the Ross Procedure representing individual series from eight different countries, comprising a total of 2,234 patients have appeared in major medical journals over the past four years and report that:

  • The Ross Procedure is associated with excellent long-term survival;
  • Late survival with the Ross Procedure is comparable to that of the age-matched general population; and
  • There is an excellent propensity-adjusted survival with the Ross Procedure in a pediatric patient population study compared to the excess mortality demonstrated with using a mechanical valve (as reported by one of the nine reports).

Led by Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, FRS, FRCS, of Imperial College's Heart Science Center in London in tandem with William F. Northrup III, MD, vice president of physicia
