CRYO-S Electric in ENT
Cryosurgery technique is an established clinical modality which offers ENT surgeons a unique tool to eradicate many benign as well as pre–malignant lesions in the ENT spectrum. Its special role in chronic vasomotor rhinitis is well established.
Cryosurgery technique which is tissue destruction by local application of a refrigerant offers clear advantages over other invasive methods. Its inherent anesthetic and haemostatic properties make it suitable for outpatient use. The tissue destruction is essentially well circumscribed, leaving a cryolesion characterized by healing without scarring and complications.
NEW Cryo-S Electric in ENT
State of the art cryosurgical device manufactured by Metrum CryoFlex is the new generation of apparatus used by many experts in the field since1992. Cryo-S Electric II is controlled by microprocessor, and all parameters are displayed on LCD screen.
- Mode selection, cleaning the probe and freezing can be performed automatically using foot switch or touch panel so that the site of a lesion remains sterile.
- Electronic communication (chip system) between the unit and connected cryoprobe. Unit recognizes optimal operating parameters and auto-configures to probe characteristics.
- Pressure and gas flow are set automatically, any manual adjustment is not necessary
- Contains automatic probe cleaning system and two freezing modes (continuous and discontinuous)
- Temperature of the probe, pressure, gas flow and time of the procedure are displayed during freezing.
Cryoablation with CRYO-S Electric II is successfully used as a supplementary treatment to bilateral tonsillectomy performed due to the chronic palatine tonsillitis. Moreover, cryosurgery was used effectively in treatment of chronic rhinitis, papillomas located in nose and larynx, leucoplakia and neoplastic lesions of the nasopharynx.
Distinct benefits of using CRYO-S Electric II in ENT and otolaryngology
- Cryo applications under local anesthesia
- No scarring
- No bleeding during and after the procedures
- Palliation of painful neoplasms
- Minimum pain controlled with non–narcotic analgesics
- Well accepted by elderly and debilitated patients
- No unpleasant odour of burning tissue
- Excellent effects, low costs, and minimal hospitalization requirements make cryotherapy a popular modality in ENT
