The flexible single-use cryoprobes are available in various sizes. Providing broad compatibility for various clinical applications such as tissue devitalization and extraction of foreign bodies, mucous plugs, blood clots, necrotic tissue, tissue tumors (recanalization) and tissue biopsies.1
The miniaturized 1.1 mm and 1.7 mm probes enable enhanced clinical utility and compatibility.5 The 2.4 mm probe supports applications with an optimized tip design and maximum freezing performance.3
In studies, cryobiopsy is superior to forceps biopsy due to larger biopsies and no or fewer crushing artifacts. This is reflected in the diagnostic value.B3, B16
For transbronchial cryobiopsies, the yield was 80 %, enabling surgical biopsies to be potentially avoided in 80 % of cases, according to the authors.B22
The mean success rate for recanalization using cryodevitalization was 80 %.B11
Cryoadhesion can be used to freeze foreign bodies, blood clots, and mucous plugs to the cryoprobe and extract them together with the bronchoscope. Sriratanaviriyakul describes successful extraction in 84.2 % of cases.B16, B26, B7, B28, B30
With our free Medical Insights podcast we turn medical topics into an audible experience and will regularly provide information about trending topics. In personal interviews we talk to the experts about new applications, including the presentation of recently published studies from internationally respected scientific journals.
The ERBECRYO® 2 is the next generation of Erbe cryo units and was designed with a focus on improved reproducibility for state-of-the-art flexible cryo applications. Several new features support ease-of-use and enhance the technical and clinical performance.
The ERBECRYO® 2 can be combined on one cart with our electrosurgical and APC devices. This multi-modular system supports handling convenience and space-saving and facilitates multiple applications in interventional pulmonology.
