CRYOABLATION

CRYOBLATION OF TUMOR CELLS

Cryoablation is an effective, safe and minimally invasive treatment of tumors. It involves freezing of the cancer tissue (-40oC), thereby causing tumor necrosis.

The application of low temperature effects in:

  • formation of ice crystals in the diseased tissue, which then damage the structures inside the cells and their membranes, thereby destroying the tumor cells.
  • damage to the capillaries that nourish the tumor.

In the European Health Centre Otwock the tumor cryoablation procedure is performed with the latest generation device, IceCure Medical's - ProSense which uses liquid nitrogen at the temperature of -196oC. During the procedure, the ablation of the tumor is done with liquid nitrogen through a special needle. As a result, freezing of the tumor tissue and a formation of an "ice ball" occurs. The procedure is most often performed percutaneously or during laparoscopic surgery. The procedure can be done with the control of CT or ultrasound.

Cryoablation is dedicated to tumors up to 3 cm in diameter (kidney, liver) and for patients in whom there are contraindications to surgery (eg. age, accompanying illnesses etc.).

The ECZ Otwock conducts cryoablation for tumors of kidney, liver and breast.
