- Study results highlight the use of truFreeze as the only FDA-cleared minimally-invasive spray cryotherapy platform that offers clinical benefit across the esophageal disease spectrum - from Barrett's esophagus to Cancer -

BOSTON, May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CSA Medical today announced that the company's truFreeze® Spray Cryotherapy

will be featured in five sessions at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW®) 2019. The data, to be presented in three poster presentations and two podium presentations, highlight the clinical benefit that truFreeze provides to patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) and esophageal cancer (EC). DDW 2019, the world's largest gathering of physicians, researchers and industry leaders in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and gastrointestinal surgery, will be taking place in San Diego, May 18 - 21, 2019.

The truFreeze Spray Cryotherapy platform uses the extreme cold of liquid nitrogen (-196°C) to provide targeted, touchless ablation of diseased tissue, including cancer, while preserving underlying healthy tissue - in contrast to the scar tissue that forms after heat-based modalities such as radio-frequency ablation (RFA). truFreeze does not require the catheter to touch the tissue, enabling the treatment of nodular disease and unique morphologies. Additionally, truFreeze differentiates itself against other cryogens, such as nitrous oxide (-88 C), which doesn't get tissue cold enough, fast enough to penetrate and ablate cancer.

"We are steadfast in our commitment of continuing clinical progress, and the data that will be presented at DDW 2019 underscore the broad utility of truFreeze as the only FDA-cleared therapy with proven benefit across the esophageal disease spectrum, from BE to cancer," said Wendelin Maners, CSA's President,. "These presentations add to the growing body of evidence that support truFreeze as an important ablative modality for managing esophageal disease from early dysplasia to malignancy to providing palliative care for patients who have difficulty swallowing. We look forward to sharing these new data with the broader community of physicians who are on the front lines of protecting and improving the standard of care in esophageal health."
