Cryo-S for use in Pain Management
Cryoneurolysis is a therapeutic method basing on temporary disruption of neural and motor functions of some parts of the nerve system using extreme cold. Cryolesion is gaining acceptance as an innovative method in pain relief. It uses the process of analgesia, during which the ice crystals created by the cryosurgery device destroys the elements of the nerve tissue carrying pain information. Cryoablation does not damage nerve structures permanently that is why nerve tissues can regenerate slowly with no risk of post-procedural neuritis. The procedure is safe and minimally invasive, recommended especially when conservative means proved to be ineffective.
Cryo-S electric PAIN LESS is devoted for specialists in pain management – Neurosurgeons, Spine Surgeons, Orthopedists, Anesthesiologists.
- Mode selection, cleaning the probe and freezing can be performed automatically so that the site of a lesion remains sterile.
- Electronic comunication (chip system) between the unit and connected cryoprobe. Unit recognizes optimal operating parameters and auto-configures to probe characteristics.
- Presure and gas flow are set automatically; manual adjustment is not necessary
- Contains automatic probe cleaning system and two freezing modes (continuous and discontinuous)
- Temperature of the probe, pressure, gas flow, time of the procedure are displayed during freezing.
- Acute postoperative pain from thoracotomy
- Facial pain syndromes (tic doulourex Occipital, suprascapular, ilio-inguinal and other specific neuralgias)
- Facet syndrome – cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral
- Perineal neuropathies
- Phantom Limb
- Trigger points
- Painful neuromas
- Tennis elbow syndrome and golfer’s elbow syndrome
- Painful shoulder syndrome
The advantages of cryolesion in pain treatment using Cryo-S Electric PAIN LESS
- Microinvasive patient procedure, reversible effect
- High efficiency: pain reduction for 6 months to 2 years
- Simple diagnosis : fluoroscopy or echography
- Subcutaneous procedure, microinvasive under local anesthesia
- Fast return to normal activities – no hospitalization Procedure can be repeated
- Low cost
- Whole range of reusable contact probes of various shapes and sizes
- Smaller incisions, usually a few smaller scars instead of one larger scar
- Less tissue dissection
- Less damage to surrounding muscles
- Potential for less blood loss, quicker healing, shorter hospital stay, and less pain.
