The probe will ablate cardiac tissue while a patient is undergoing a primary cardiac surgical procedure, such as coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or mitral valve (MV) replacement and/or repair and as part of the Maze procedure.
Accurate lesion placement and tissue preservation
Freezing preserves tissue integrity. SurgiFrost10 features a malleable probe shaft and flexible tip with adjustable insulation sleeve that allows an ablation zone between 25 and 100 mm.
The cryoprobe's flexibility and adjustability make for accurate lesion placement, minimizing inadvertent tissue damage.
This cold-energy system - which reaches temperatures as low as -160ºC - also minimizes the risk of endocardial thrombus associated with heat-based energy sources.
The tip adheres to the target site when freezing begins for precise lesion positioning on a beating heart. The SurgiFrost 10 system combines the traditional safety of cryoenergy with the speed and flexibility required by today's cardiothoracic surgeons.
A versatile choice
The SurgiFrost 10 CryoSurgical Ablation System is quick and easy to set up and the probe is flexible and easy to manoeuvre.
Its 100-mm segment can be configured to desired lengths and shapes to produce ideal ablation lines.
SurgiFrost 10 can be used with all incision types and in conjunction with any cardiac surgical procedure.
Full median sternotomy, small sternal incisions and thoracotomy.
It can be used in a beating or arrested heart to perform all generally accepted lesion sets, including completing all Maze lesion lines efficiently.
