CryoLife Announces First European Implant Of HeRO Graft
Date:7/31/2013

ATLANTA, July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CryoLife, Inc. (NYSE: CRY), a leading tissue processing and medical device company focused on cardiac and vascular surgery, announced today that the first European clinical implant of the Company's HeRO (Hemodialysis Reliable Outflow) Graft was performed at the University of Leuven Hospital in Belgium.  The procedure was performed by Professor Inge Fourneau, a vascular surgeon, and Professor Sam Heye, an interventional radiologist.

Professor Fourneau and Professor Heye commented, "It is exciting to be the first hospital in Europe to offer the innovative benefits of the HeRO Graft to dialysis patients with end-stage renal disease in our local community.  Based on the clinical results to-date in the U.S., we believe the HeRO Graft will reduce the rate of infection as compared to tunneled dialysis catheters and improve patient quality of life."

CryoLife received CE Mark for the HeRO Graft in June 2013.  Professor Fourneau and Professor Heye will collaborate with the nephrologist team at the University of Leuven.  CryoLife expects to conduct a controlled market introduction of the HeRO Graft during the second half of 2013, followed by a broader European launch in 2014.  

Steven G. Anderson, chairman, president and CEO of CryoLife, said, "We are pleased to begin commercialization of the HeRO Graft in Europe and would like to thank Professor Fourneau and Professor Heye for performing the procedure.  Over the remainder of the year we will train additional physicians on the procedure, which will support a broader launch in Europe beginning in 2014.
