AGA Medical Corporation Launches Web-Based Stroke Education and Awareness Program Featuring Professional Football Player Tedy Bruschi
Date:1/29/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- AGA Medical Corporation today launched a web-based stroke education and awareness program featuring Tedy Bruschi, a professional football player who suffered a stroke in February 2005, subsequently recovered and returned to his career. The unique online educational program will consist of a series of videos posted monthly on the AGA Medical website that describe Tedy's firsthand experience as a stroke victim, survivor and prevention champion.

"I hope that by sharing my experiences through the video series people will come to understand the important risk factors for stroke, learn to quickly identify the warning signs and be better prepared should they themselves or a loved one, colleague or neighbor experience a stroke," said Tedy Bruschi. "I know firsthand the emotional and physical challenges that experiencing a stroke can lead to. My hope is that the content of the program developed with AGA Medical may help other stroke survivors achieve a positive recovery. That is why this effort is so important to me."

AGA Medical announced its partnership with Tedy Bruschi in December 2008 with the release of a video in which Tedy describes the warning signs of stroke. The national stroke awareness program's next initiative - a series of five inspirational videos of Tedy discussing his personal experience with stroke and educating others about warning signs - will be posted monthly beginning January 29, 2009. Visitors to the www.amplatzer.com/strokeawareness website will be able to view the first video in the series, describing Tedy's life prior to his stroke. AGA Medical will launch additional initiatives throughout 2009 to build upon this comprehensive stroke education, awareness and prevention campaign.

"We are proud to launch the video series initiative as part of our partnership with Tedy to develop a nation
