Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BOSTON - May 08, 2017 - CSA Medical today announced new clinical data related to its truFreeze® Spray Cryotherapy (SCT) system to be presented in a series of oral and poster presentations at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.
“The variety of truFreeze Liquid Nitrogen Spray Cryotherapy abstract topics presented at DDW demonstrates the importance of truFreeze in a broad range of malignant or benign esophageal lesions. Patient preference and tolerability of truFreeze is increasingly important as clinicians consider ablation options for Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal cancer,” remarked Ellen Sheets, M.D., CEO and President of CSA Medical. “By utilizing truFreeze, a physician is able to ablate the patient’s specific condition with the appropriate amount of cryogen. truFreeze is able to achieve colder spray temperatures than any other cryogen treatment, providing the ideal depth of ablation to result in benign and malignant cell death.
