Date:8/7/2009

ISELIN, N.J., Aug. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SyntheMed, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SYMD), a biomaterials company engaged in the development and commercialization of anti-adhesion products, announced today that REPEL-CV Bioresorbable Adhesion Barrier has received the endorsement of Kids With Heart National Association for Children's Heart Disorders, Inc. Michelle L. Rintamaki, Director of Kids With Heart, stated, "We want to inform parents of children with congenital heart defects about this new surgical device that reduces the risks associated with adhesions during repeat open-heart surgical procedures."

About Adhesions

Adhesions, or scar tissue, occur after virtually all open-heart surgical procedures, often resulting in the heart becoming attached to the sternum and other surrounding tissue surfaces. The presence of adhesions represents a prevalent and serious complication in secondary surgical procedures, increasing the patient risk, length and cost of the surgical procedure.

About REPEL-CV

REPEL-CV is a bioresorbable adhesion barrier film designed to be placed over the surface of the heart at the conclusion of an open-heart surgical procedure to reduce the extent and severity of adhesions. It was recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in pediatric patients who undergo staged open-heart surgical procedures.
