CryoLife's subsidiary, Cardiogenesis Corporation, specializes in treatment of cardiovascular disease and in devices that treat severe angina. Its YAG laser system and single-use fiberoptic delivery systems are used to perform an FDA-cleared surgical procedure known as TMR, which treats patients with angina that is not responsive to standard medications. Patients undergoing TMR treatment with Cardiogenesis products have been shown to have angina improvement, longer event-free survival, reduction in cardiac related hospitalizations, and increased exercise tolerance.
