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."
