Cardica's C-Port Anastomosis Systems for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Procedures to be Used to Train Cardiothoracic Surgeons at Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) University
Date:1/30/2008

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardica, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRDC) today announced that its innovative C-Port(R) Distal Anastomosis Systems will be used in two courses to train cardiothoracic surgeons at the 2008 STS University. In addition to the C-Port systems, the PAS-Port(R) Proximal Anastomosis System* will also be shown. These courses will be held today during the 44th Annual Meeting of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. With attendees from around the world, STS is the largest meeting of cardiothoracic surgeons in North America. Cardica's C-Port systems are designed to allow surgeons to automate distal anastomosis -- the attachment of blood vessels and grafts downstream of an occlusion during coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedures -- replacing traditional hand-sewn sutures.

"Cardica's C-Port anastomosis systems represent the cutting edge of revascularization for less invasive CABG surgery and are designed to provide rapid, reliable and consistently reproducible anastomoses, which are often considered the most critical aspect of the CABG procedure," said Bernard A. Hausen, M.D., Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Cardica.

Among the 11 courses that will be offered during STS University, Cardica's products will be used in conjunction with other products to train surgeons in the following:

-- "Advanced Coronary Revascularization Techniques," directed by John D.

Puskas, M.D. This course on advanced CABG techniques will provide an

update on recent advances in surgical management of coronary artery

disease. It will include presentations on advanced techniques in
