Cryolife Victim Responds to Untrue Assertions of Cryolife
Date:1/11/2008

ATLANTA, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This morning Michael Hohenbery issued a press release detailing the unsafe practices of Cryolife in the processing of cadaver tissue that was placed inside of his body.

Unfortunately, Cryolife has chosen to issue a press release that contains untrue statements, similar to the untrue press comments they made in the past. See the Federal Court Order of 27 May 2003 in the Cryolife Securities Litigation case where the Federal District Court ruled on the untrue press releases of Cryolife of 7 December 2001, 29 January 2002, 23 April 2002 and 24 June 2002. (In Re Cryolife Inc Securities Litigation, United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, Civil Action No. 1:02-CV-1868-BBM)
In today's press release, Cryolife states:

1. CRYOLIFE: "Shortly after the infection was discovered, Cryolife

notified the FDA of the incident as it was required to do."

THE TRUTH: The clostridium infection sustained by Michael Hohenbery

from the Cryolife cadaver tissue was acknowledged by Cryolife in

writing on February 8, 2007. Cryolife made no effort to notify

other physicians or hospitals who had received tissue from this

cadaver for at least a month and the FDA reflects posting 5 months

later in the Weekly Enforcement Report a Class I recall of certain

cadaver tissue by Cryolife. A class I recall as defined by the FDA

is one in which "there is reasonable probability that the use of or

exposure to the product will cause serious health problems or

death."

2. CRYOLIFE: "Regrettably, the lawyers representing this individual

have chosen to make untrue public statements against our company and

our tissue processing services in an effort to force us into a

monetary settlement of the case."

THE TRUTH: Cryolife was invited to and agreed to attend two

different mediations to attempt to resolve the claims. Cryolife

unilaterally cancelled each of those mediation dates at the last

minute.
