Superior Visualization [1,2,3,4]

Clearly visualize the ‘ice-ball’ on imaging in real-time to confirm ablation zones adjacent to vulnerable structures (spinal column and the bowel) and minimize risk of thermal injury. Overcome ‘cold sink’ effects particularly centrally within the kidney.

Definitive Control [4,5]

Cytotoxic temperatures are delivered to the tissues within seconds due to rapid, high-pressure argon gas expansion by the Joule-Thomson effect. Endocare Cryoprobes are each equipped with an integrated temperature sensor to monitor probe performance during the procedure.

Adjustable Isotherms [6]

The Endocare V-Probe is the only cryoprobe available on the market capable of producing an array of ‘ice-ball’ sizes. Control the size of the isotherm by moving an adjustable slider with your thumb. Available in straight and right-angled configurations.
