AGA Medical Announces Management Transition
Date:6/20/2008

MINNEAPOLIS, June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- AGA Medical Holdings, Inc. ("AGA Medical" or "AGA") announced today a transition of responsibilities in its senior management team.

Franck Gougeon has decided to transition from his day-to-day role as President and CEO of AGA to focus his efforts on strategic planning for AGA's future. Mr. Gougeon will remain a member of the AGA's Board of Directors and will Chair a newly formed committee of the Board, the Corporate Development Committee. The Committee has been chartered to focus on AGA's long-range strategies in a number of areas, including product development and planning and AGA strategic human resource planning and development.

Tommy Thompson, Chairman of the Board for AGA, commented, "Franck Gougeon has played a critical role in the development of AGA. Under his leadership, the Company has expanded operations and now sells in over 100 countries. His close work with Dr. Amplatz, a co-founder of AGA Medical along with Franck, has enabled the company to build a reputation for innovation in the field of minimally invasive repair of structural heart defects."

Mr. Thompson continued, "In his new role, Franck will continue to work closely with Dr. Amplatz on new product development and will help develop a longer-term vision for the company. He has developed relationships with leading cardiologists around the world, and we plan to work with Franck to leverage those relationships on AGA's behalf. I have enjoyed working with Franck in his role as AGA's CEO, and I look forward to our continued relationship as he moves into this important new role. I anticipate that AGA and the Board will continue to benefit greatly from his experience and leadership in these key areas."

Franck Gougeon co-founded AGA with Dr. Kurt Amplatz in 1995. He was named President and CEO in July 2005 following a successful recapitalization and investment in the company by Welsh Carson Anderson and Stowe. Under Mr. Gougeon's stew
