CryoLife Announces First Clinical Use of BioFoam(R)
Date:9/10/2009

gical options for the control of intraoperative bleeding," said Steven G. Anderson, CryoLife president and chief executive officer. "We believe the unique adherence and expansion characteristics of this product make it useful for organ sealing and other future surgical applications. It is a wonderful complement to our existing hemostasis products, BioGlue(R) and HemoStase(TM)."

In December 2008, CryoLife received conditional approval from the FDA to conduct the feasibility phase of the company's BioFoam IDE submission for liver parenchymal sealing. The feasibility phase will enroll a total of 20 subjects at two investigational sites in the U.S. Before beginning this phase, the Company must receive final approval of the study protocol and related documents from the FDA and an additional approval of the study from the U.S. Department of Defense. CryoLife is in the final stages of this approval process and expects to start enrollment in Q4 2009.

During the European Association of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) annual meeting in Vienna, Austria Oct. 17-21, booth 43, CryoLife will be soliciting input from the attendees on potential future clinical applications for the use of BioFoam in cardiothoracic surgery.

About BioFoam

BioFoam, a protein hydrogel biomaterial developed by CryoLife, contains an expansion agent which generates a mixed-cell foam. The foam creates a mechanical barrier to decrease blood flow and pores for the blood to enter, leading to cellular aggregation and enhanced hemostasis. It is easily applied and can be used intraoperatively to control internal organ hemorrhage, limit blood loss, and reduce the need for future reoperations in liver resections. BioFoam is based on the same protein hydrogel technology platform from which BioGlue Surgical Adhesive was developed. BioFoam received C
