What is Cryosurgery?
Cryosurgery is the application of extremely cold temperatures to remove abnormal or diseased tissues in a safe, efficient manner. This surgical procedure is most often used in dermatology, gynecology, and early cancer treatment.
What Can Cryosurgery Treat?
Cryosurgery is a common solution in order to treat skin conditions and abnormalities. These conditions may include the following:
- Skin tags.
- Actinic keratosis.
- Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia.
Cryosurgery can definitely be applied to more skin conditions that aren't on this list. More treatments are being researched to see where cryosurgery can help.
Complete Cryosurgical Systems
For more complex or complicated cryosurgical procedures, full cryosurgery systems are recommended over the portable options. These systems, such as the Wallach WA1000B Cryosurgical System, provide robust freezing from canisters with manual triggers that concentrate the nitrous oxide. With these manual triggers and pressure gauge, users can expect exceptional control when using this system.
Bovie offers cryosurgical devices that are portable, disposable, and designed as a low-cost use for minor skin treatments. IceOut is a quick-use cryosurgical tool that delivers N2O gas directly to the treatment site. IceOut consists of a sizable canister for multiple applications, and disposable applicators to prevent cross-contamination between patients. Each canister has an average shelf life of three years.
Caregivers who utilize cryosurgical devices, such as IceOut mentioned above, can receive a reimbursement for performing specific treatments. See the IceOut Portable Cryosurgical System Brochure for more details.
Medical Gas Cylinders
In order to process and administer the super-cold treatment, durable canisters are needed to house the N2O or CO2 substances. Wallach offers two such canisters, with each weighing 20 lb (approximately) and containing up to 80 minutes of freeze time.
