HealthTronics Launches New Line Of Slimline Cryoprobes For Use With Its Endocare® Cryocare® Systems

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthTronics Inc., an Endo Health Solutions company (Nasdaq: ENDP), today announced that its subsidiary, Endocare Inc., has launched a new line of right angle slimline cryoprobes for use with the Endocare ® Cryocare ® Systems.

The new cryoprobes feature a slim ergonomic handle designed to improve the ability of clinicians to place these probes within the limited confines of interventional radiology procedure suites. Designed to provide increased maneuverability, the tubing attached to the new cryoprobes is lighter and more flexible than existing cryoprobes' tubing. 

"By incorporating feedback from interventional radiologists while designing this line of slimline cryoprobes, we're bringing to market these advanced cryoprobes," said Mark Rooney, Vice President and General Manager of Oncology Solutions, HealthTronics.  "Cryoablation continues to grow as a treatment option for multiple applications, and we want to provide our customers with the tools and technology they need to best treat their patients.  We are proud to introduce this new line of next generation cryoprobes."

About Cryoablation and the Endocare ® Cryocare ® SystemsCryoablation, also known as cryotherapy, uses proven, state-of-the-art technology to destroy cancerous tissue by using extremely cold temperatures that freeze affected cells.  Endocare remains the market leader in this category, and, as a wholly owned subsidiary of HealthTronics, is able to supply the broadest offerings of customer solutions available for cryoablation.  For more information, go to or call 855-ENDOCARE.

Important Safety Information about Endocare CryotherapyThis treatment is not for everyone. Patients should consult their cancer care team to decide whether cryoablation is right for them. Patients who receive cryoablation should be carefully monitored after cryoablation to detect recurrence and treat as necessary.  Only qualified, trained personnel should operate the Endocare ® Cryocare ® Systems. Physicians offering cryoablation must be trained to use the systems.
