The Ross Summit to focus on new survival data, technique refinement and availability
Date:10/12/2010

with a cryopreserved human pulmonary valve. The procedure is a complex surgical technique that is usually performed in specialized centers by surgeons who have developed specific expertise with the procedure. As a result, one of the Summit's sessions will focus on increasing the availability of the procedure to the patients for whom it is best suited by increasing awareness in the cardiologist community and by mentoring the next generation of Ross surgeons.

Led by Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, FRS, FRCS, of Imperial College's Heart Science Center in London in tandem with Dr. Northrup, The Ross Summit also includes two afternoons of hands-on mentored instruction in the various techniques of this specific form of cardiac reconstruction utilizing biological simulators. A full faculty list and summit agenda can be found at www.cryolife.com/about/events/hosted/therosssummit.

"Things are constantly changing, evolving and improving within the Ross Procedure community," noted Steven G. Anderson, chairman, president and CEO of CryoLife. "It's why CryoLife hosts the Ross Summit annually. The interaction and perspective from peers and the continued sharing of new data have proven valuable to this elite group of cardiothoracic surgeons as evidenced by the repeat registrations each year."

A decellularized human pulmonary heart valve, CryoValve SG, processed using CryoLife's SynerGraft technology, was cleared by the FDA in February 2008 for use in cardiac reconstruction procedures such as the Ross Procedure.
