Date:9/9/2011

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardica, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRDC) today reported that its C-Port® Flex-A® Anastomosis System will be featured in a clinical presentation to cardiothoracic surgeons this afternoon at the East Carolina Heart Institute-International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ECHI-ISMICS) Summit in Greenville, North Carolina. The presentation, entitled "Robotic Coronary Revascularization: Connectors and Pearls," will be given by nationally-renowned cardiothoracic surgeon, Husam Balkhy, M.D., director of the Center for Robotic and Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery at The Wisconsin Heart Hospital, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

"Dr. Balkhy has been using our anastomosis systems to attach the bypass graft vessels during minimally invasive cardiac surgery, for many years, with remarkable success," said Bernard A. Hausen, M.D., Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Cardica, Inc. "This presentation offers other cardiothoracic surgeons the opportunity to see first-hand the difference between a connector bypass procedure using our automated anastomosis device compared to hand-sewing the anastomosis."

The presentation details how Dr. Balkhy uses Cardica's C-Port systems to perform a connector procedure, including selection of graft vessels, a description of the features and benefits of the C-Port system, and the mechanics of deployment during connector procedures on a beating heart in the closed chest setting, also known as a totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass (TECAB) procedure. In addition, Dr. Balkhy's use of the C-Port systems is described in the current peer-reviewed issue of The Annals of Thoracic Surgery in an article entitled "Integrating Coronary Anastomotic Connectors and Robotics Toward a Totally Endoscopic Beating Heart Approach: Review of 120 Cases." Dr. Balkhy is a recog
