2:00 p.m. Central Time -

MILWAUKEE, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wisconsin Heart Hospital today announced that leading cardiothoracic surgeon Husam H. Balkhy, M.D., will webcast a live off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedure from The Wisconsin Heart Hospital. The approximately 75-minute live webcast will be available on http://www.OR-Live.com on Thursday, January 17, at 2:00 p.m. Central Time. A replay will be available for 180 days following the live presentation for interested parties.

During the webcast, Husam H. Balkhy, M.D., Chairman of the Department of Cardiac & Vascular Surgery and head of the robotics program at The Wisconsin Heart Hospital, will perform a beating heart procedure using the C-Port xA(R) and C-Port(R) Flex A(TM) Distal Anastomosis Systems. Developed by Cardica, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRDC), the innovative C-Port anastomosis systems are designed to allow surgeons to automate the attachment of blood vessel grafts, replacing traditional hand-sewn with sutures. In addition to its use of the C-Port systems, The Wisconsin Heart Hospital recently acquired Intuitive Surgical's (Nasdaq: ISRG) da Vinci(R) S Surgical System, to continue to advance its leadership in minimally invasive surgery.

During the broadcast, Dr. Louis A. (Trey) Brunsting III, M.D., cardiothoracic surgeon at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, will present
