The Challenge of Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a debilitating condition affecting approximately 10 percent of women of reproductive age worldwide.
It is characterized by the growth of tissue similar to the uterine lining on other pelvic organs, leading to excruciating pain, depression, anxiety, and even infertility.
Traditional treatments have been limited to hormonal therapies and surgery, offering only temporary relief.
Enter Cryoablation: A Game-Changer
In a recent study, the medical community witnessed a remarkable shift in the treatment landscape for endometriosis.
Researchers utilized IceCure Medical’s cryoablation system, which employs extremely cold liquid nitrogen to destroy abnormal tissue. The results were nothing short of astonishing.
A cohort of 42 women with endometriosis became pioneers in this transformative journey.
The cryoablation procedure, powered by liquid nitrogen, was conducted at physicians’ offices without the need for hospitalization.
Unlike previous methods that used a mixture of argon and helium gasses, the use of liquid nitrogen proved more cost-effective and time-efficient.
The Impact on Patients
What truly sets this study apart is the relief it provided to the patients.
The majority—93.75%—reported experiencing significantly less pain just six months after the procedure.
Even more impressively, 82.72% percent remained pain-free for up to three years.
More importantly, this innovative approach significantly reduces the need for secondary surgeries. It was found to be 92.8% effective per patient at avoiding the need for additional invasive procedures.
