EVEREST MEDICAL CORPORATION RECEIVES JAPAN IMPORT APPROVAL

 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Everest Medical Corporation (NASDAQ: EVMD) announced today that it has received notice from its Japanese distributor, Koshin International, that the Japan Ministry of Health has granted import approval for the EVERSHEARS(TM) bipolar laparoscopic scissors. This approval permits Koshin to commence promotion and sales of the device throughout the Japan market.
 With this approval, Koshin now has import approval for the major products of the Everest Medical minimally invasive surgery line, including the BiLAP(R) bipolar cutting hook, the BiCOAG(TM) Forceps, and the EVERSHEARS scissors.
 The Japan market for minimally invasive surgery has not developed as rapidly as the U.S. market, but reimbursement changes in 1992 are expected to lead to a significant increase in the number of minimally invasive procedures performed in Japan. Everest Medical's products are designed specifically for minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopic hysterectomy and laparoscopic gall bladder removal.
 Koshin, of Osaka, Japan, has sales offices throughout the country. It has been successful with the company's G.I. endoscopy product line, and is now making preparations to develop a strong presence in the minimally invasive surgical market.
 Everest Medical designs, manufactures and markets products for the minimally invasive surgical markets of laparoscopic surgery and gastrointestinal endoscopy.
