Cryolife Victim Responds to Untrue Assertions of Cryolife

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.

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


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
