Date:7/1/2008

MINNEAPOLIS, July 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Uroplasty, Inc. (Amex: UPI), a medical device company that develops, manufactures and markets innovative proprietary products for the treatment of voiding dysfunctions, announced today that it was added to the Russell Microcap(R) Index when Russell Investments reconstituted its comprehensive family of U.S. and global equity indexes on June 27, 2008.

Membership in the Russell Microcap, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes. Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. An industry-leading $4.4 trillion in assets currently are benchmarked to them.

"We are pleased with our inclusion in this index, which reflects our continued positive momentum," said David Kaysen, President and CEO. "Russell is an industry leader for stock indexes, and we expect our inclusion will generate greater interest in our stock among investors."

Total returns data for the Russell Microcap and other Russell Indexes is available at http://www.russell.com/Indexes/performance/daily_total_returns_us.asp.
