MAPLE GROVE, Minn., April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NxThera, Inc., a medical device company pioneering the applicationof its convective radiofrequency thermal technology to treat endourological conditions, today announced the Humana and Aetna health care insurance plans have joined other major insurers to provide coverage of the Rez?mŽ System for the minimally invasive
"Our mission is to improve the lives of men suffering from BPH, and the Rez?m System provides urologists and their patients with a safe, effective and durable treatment option with minimal discomfort," said Bob Paulson, president and CEO of NxThera. "The recently published 2-year data from our Rez?m II pivotal study demonstrates sustained and durable symptom relief and preserved sexual function in patients who were treated with the Rez?m System. These compelling clinical outcomes from a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in an office or outpatient setting, provide an efficient and cost-effective BPH treatment option for urologists, patients and health plans."
The Rez?m System uses radiofrequency current to create thermal energy that is convectively delivered to obstructive prostate tissue through targeted, precise treatments with minimal discomfort. The thermal energy rapidly and effectively ablates the tissue that causes BPH, which is resorbed by the body's immune system to alleviate the symptoms of BPH and improve patients' quality of life and ability to urinate.
