What is the LithoVue single use digital flexible Uteroscope
It is a single use uteroscope that is always sterile, always ready, the small tip size and digital images help guide the way through the uteroscopy. Helps remove stones. The power of it starts with a digital chip built into the tip,. It delivers a digital image with seamless navigation for your most challenging procedures. Because they are single use there's no risk of image degradation that often occurs with multi use utersocopes. Flexible by design with a digital tip in the 7.7 French tip diameter. It has full 270 degree flection in both directions allowing you to navigate to the treatment area even in difficult anatomy. the lasers and wires readily pass through the 3.6 f Chanel. Must be used with the lithovue monitor and image processing software, or connect to your existing OR monitors
What are specifications of the LithoVue system
The LithoVue System is an all-in-one solution, the ideal choice for a wide range of clinical environments. And its workstation's monitor with integrated image processing software is mounted on a compact, rolling mobile cart. You can use the complete LithoVue System alone during a procedure or connect it to your OR's existing DVI monitors and recording systems.
How often do multiple use uteroscopes need repair
Repairs are necessary on average after 12 uses and then one more major repair after 8 more uses- image quality compromised in 28 percent of studies
LithoVue has what percent of reduction in complications and what percent in decrease in OR time
15.5 minute reduction in OR time
What is Rezume
Powered by convective water vapor energy, the Rezūm System delivers targeted, controlled doses of the stored thermal energy in water vapor directly to the region of the prostate gland with the obstructive tissue causing the lower urinary tract symptoms secondary (LUTS) to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
What is the Rezume treatment
Each 9-second treatment uses 0.42ml of heated sterile water vapor which rapidly and uniformly disperses through the tissue interstices. The condensation of water vapor releases stored thermal energy. Cell membranes are denatured, thereby causing immediate cell death, the vasculature is closed, and there is denervation of the alpha-adrenergic nerves within the treatment zone providing you with an efficient, uniform, predictable treatment.
Over time, this ablated tissue is reabsorbed by the body's natural healing response, reducing the volume of tissue allowing the urethra to open relieving LUTS.
What are the benefits of Rezume
The Rezūm procedure provides the following benefits to men suffering from BPH:
-Alternative to BPH medications
-Studies support Rezūm relieves symptoms safely and effectively
-Noticeable symptom improvement within two weeks
-Simple in-office/out-patient therapy
-Does not require general anesthesia
-Preserves erectile and urinary functions
-Ability to return to regular activities within a few days
-Covered by Medicare and most private insurers
Describe the science of Rezume 1
Combining the Efficiency of Convective Thermal Energy and Anatomy
A hand-held delivery device, similar in shape and size to a cystoscope, is connected to a generator. A few drops of sterile water are heated to approximately 103ºC and as the sterile water is transformed from liquid into steam, or vapor, the volume expands by almost 1,700 times and stores 540 calories of thermal energy for every milliliter (mL).
Describe the science of Rezume 2
A precise dose of water vapor thermal energy is delivered into the targeted tissue using a small needle with multiple emitter holes to enable controlled and uniform vapor dispersion. The vapor is delivered into the targeted tissue at slightly above interstitial pressure, convectively driving the water vapor through tissue interstices, where it condenses and transfers the stored thermal energy directly to the targeted tissue. This convective heat transfer is what differentiates Rezūm from other ablative thermal therapies that rely on the slower, less precise and less efficient process of conduction to heat tissue.
Describe the science of Resume 3
Convective transfer of water vapor thermal energy to tissue is fast but also self-limiting. Water vapor condenses back into its liquid state as it is dispersed through tissue, so the energy travels no further than its intended area of treatment. The prostate is comprised of three separate zones or regions and the enlarged tissue that causes BPH is located in two of them - the transition zone and the central zone. The tissue separating these zones provides a natural anatomical barrier that contains the vapor within the intended treatment areas.
