Urology – Prostate

New treatment in urological surgery

Device for prostate remodeling (BPH) and oncological treatment

Cryoremodeling – new, transperineal treatment for prostate (BPH) which is minimally invasive, guaranties less complications and decreases risk of in amation after. Cryosurgery as a prostate treatment is gaining favor among patients and doctors. EBM and doctors experiences show, that cryosurgery can be more effective and less expensive alternative to TURP or laser surgery.



How prostate cryoremodeling is performed

Surgeon inserts several thin cryoprobes (3, 6 or 8) through the perineum into the prostate. An ultrasound probe placed in rectum allows the surgeon to see the prostate and surrounding tissue, what helps properly place cryoprobes. N20 or CO2 gas used as cooling medium rapidly lowers temperature of the cryoprobes in tissue to about -40°C. Extremely low temperature creates ice balls, that freeze the entire prostate. When the prostate is frozen, next it is thawed. Freeze-thaw cycle is repeated to reduce possibility, that any undesirable prostate tissue remains. Freezing procedure takes 3 – 6 min. Often patient may return home the same day.

Advantages of prostate cryoremodeling treatment:

Gives „QUADRIFECTA” result.

  • Can be applied irrespective of patients health conditions or age
  • Can beperformed in local anesthesia or light sedation
  • Gives less complications: no bleeding, no stenosis, no liquid reabsorbtion, enables ejaculation preserve
  • Performed with use of reusable cryoprobes (steam, plazma or ETO sterilization)
  • Cost effective procedure

Other indications of cryosurgery with use of with Cryo-S Electric II in urology, gyneacology and oncology:

  • Stenosis of uretra
  • Pain management (pelvic pain)
  • Fibroma of penis (peyornie diseases)
  • Overactive bladder
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Breast broadenoma
  • Lung cancer
  • Kidney cancer

Before, during and after treatment.

Cryoprobes & their features

  • Gas type: CO2, N2O
  • Sterilization method: steam auto clave, EtO gas
  • Sterilization quantity: 10
  • 1 year lifetime
  • RFID
  • Freezing lenght: 2.5 cm, 3.5 cm, 4.5 cm
  •  Triangular tip 2.0 mm (14 Ga)

* Laboratory testing of cryoprobes was performed in constant 37°C temperature gel (agar/agar). Measurements were made single freezing, to present the area of frozen tissue. Accuracy is ±2 mm width, ±2 mm length.
