ATS Medical continues to broaden its exposure and relationships within the cardiac surgery community and the STS meeting provides an excellent opportunity to display the progress made in assembling an array of product offerings focused on meeting the evolving needs of cardiac surgeons. Featured products will include the company's flagship ATS Open Pivot(R) Heart Valve and our latest advancement, the ATS Open Pivot(R) AP360(TM). Recently approved in the US, the AP360 expands upon the fundamental strengths of the open pivot design by maximizing hemodynamic performance while incorporating a cuff design that will extend the valve's appeal to a broader spectrum of surgeon preferences.

ATS 3f(R) tissue heart valve products will be prominently featured. In-booth presentations on Monday, January 28th will include Dr. Richard Shemin, UCLA Medical Center, presenting a "Review of FDA Clinical Data with the ATS 3f(R) Aortic Bioprosthesis" and Professor Thierry Carrel, University Hospital of Berne, reporting on "Experience with the Sutureless ATS 3f Enable(TM) Aortic Bioprosthesis".

The ATS Simulus(R) annuloplasty product family, designed for the heart valve repair market segment, has expanded with the recent FDA approval of the ATS Simulus(R) Semi-Rigid Ring. This meeting will be the first market introduction of the semi rigid addition to the Simulus product line. The Simulus Semi Rigid ring includes the unique Flex-Zone(TM) anterior segment which respects the natural motion of the mitral annulus and its proximity to the aortic valve allowing for a safer, more physiologic valve repair.

Surgical treatment of cardiac arrhythmias continues to be a topic of great interest for surgeons and growing numbers find the ATS CryoMaze(TM) product line to be their therapy of choice. Dr. Harold Roberts, Florida Medical Center, will be presenting "CryoMaze Using Argon-Based Cryoablation is Highly Effective Therapy During Complex Valve Procedures" at the ATS booth on Tuesday, January 29th. In conjunction with East Carolina Heart Institute, ATS is sponsoring a scientific symposium focusing the treatment of atrial fibrillation, moderated by ATS Medical Director Dr. James L. Cox, and STS President Dr. W. Randolph Chitwood. Hands-on demonstrations of these market leading cryoablation technologies will be available at ATS Medical's booth #424.
