CSA Medical Announces FDA (510K) clearance of truFreeze® System, RapidAV spray catheter

BOSTON, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CSA Medical announced on Monday, an advancement of its catheter technology with the expansion of its truFreeze® catheter offerings to include a third Spray Kit for the truFreeze System, referred to as the Rapid AV Spray Kit. The Rapid AV catheter has a material property change such that it provides the ability to shorten the time to liquid nitrogen spray by 50%.  The shortened time to liquid nitrogen spray decreases treatment time overall as well.

The truFreeze System is indicated for use as a cryosurgical tool in the fields of dermatology, gynecology, and general surgery, to ablate benign (e.g. Barrett's Esophagus with high grade dysplasia) and malignant lesions.

truFreeze® is the only ablation technology that ablates Barrett's Esophagus with high grade dysplasia, or cancers such as in the esophagus, utilizing a non-contact liquid nitrogen spray cryotherapy system.  The truFreeze system makes it possible to deliver liquid nitrogen inside the body in a way that is far colder than is needed to effectively destroy these tissue types by a factor of >2.

"We are pleased to have obtained FDA clearance to expand our product offerings for our truFreeze System.  With the addition of the Rapid AV Spray Kit, it is anticipated that physicians will be able to substantially reduce treatment times such that patients have a shorter procedural time," says Ellen Sheets MD, CEO and President of CSA Medical. 

This product expansion reiterates truFreeze as a treatment option for Barrett's Esophagus, and malignant lesions and supports coverage decisions for truFreeze patient treatments.
