ATLANTA, June 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CryoLife, Inc., (NYSE: CRY) an implantable biological medical device and cardiovascular tissue processing company, today announced that, according to company data, CryoLife's BioGlue(R) Surgical Adhesive has been used in more than 500,000 surgical procedures throughout the world since its introduction into the international market in 1998 and in the United States in 2001.
