AtriCure Ranked 80th in Deloitte's Technology Fast 500

WEST CHESTER, Ohio, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AtriCure, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATRC), the leader in cardiac surgical ablation systems, has been ranked 80th in North America and 1st in Ohio in Deloitte's prestigious Technology Fast 500. The Fast 500 is a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. AtriCure achieved 2,066 percent growth, from $1.8 million in revenues in 2002 to revenues of $38.2 million in 2006.

"We believe that our high ranking in this five-year report of hyper-growth technology companies is an indication of our ability to consistently execute and deliver results," said David J. Drachman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "AtriCure was founded on the vision of expanding the treatment options for the millions of patients worldwide who have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. To date, approximately 50,000 procedures have been performed throughout the world using our cardiac ablation systems. We are more certain than ever of our ability to make seminal contributions within cardiovascular medicine and deliver results for patients, physicians and shareholders."

About AtriCure, Inc.

AtriCure, Inc. is the leading company developing, manufacturing and selling innovative cardiac surgical ablation systems designed to create precise lesions, or scars, in cardiac, or heart, tissues. Medical journals have described the adoption by leading cardiothoracic surgeons of the AtriCure Isolator(R) bipolar ablation clamps as a treatment alternative during open- heart surgical procedures to create lesions in cardiac tissue to block the abnormal electrical impulses that cause atrial fibrillation, or AF, a rapid, irregular quivering of the upper chambers of the heart. Additionally, leading cardiothoracic surgeons have described the AtriCure Isolator(R) clamps as a promising treatment alternative for patients who may be candidates for sole- therapy minimally invasive procedures. AF affects more than 2.5 million Americans and predisposes them to a five-fold increased risk of stroke.

The FDA has cleared the AtriCure Isolator(R) bipolar ablation system, including the new Isolator Synergy(TM) ablation clamps, for the ablation, or destruction, of soft tissues in general and cardiac related surgical procedures, but to date has not cleared or approved the system for the treatment of AF. The FDA has cleared the AtriCure multifunctional bipolar Pen for the ablation of cardiac tissue and for temporary pacing, sensing, stimulating and recording during the evaluation of cardiac arrhythmias, but the multifunctional bipolar Pen has not been approved for the treatment of AF.
