38 Cryoablation Studies, Exhibits Presented at National Radiological Society Meeting
Date:12/2/2008

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Endocare, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENDO), an innovative medical device company focused on the development of minimally invasive technologies used by urologists and interventional radiologists for tissue and tumor ablation, announced today that physicians from leading medical institutions including Mayo Clinic, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, among others, will present a total of 38 scientific papers, posters and educational exhibits related to cryoablation and its effectiveness for treating a wide variety of cancers this week at the 93rd Scientific Assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago. Cryoablation is a minimally invasive procedure in which tumors are targeted with ultrasound, computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging guidance and treated by freezing.

The presentations include a 36-month update of a multi-center study that demonstrates the safety, effectiveness and durability of cryoablation as a means of dramatically reducing focal pain for patients whose cancer has spread to their bones. The update on the study, which includes data from 50 of a planned total of 60 patients, is being presented by Matthew Callstrom, M.D., PhD of Mayo Clinic, the lead investigator.

The conference also includes several presentations focused on percutaneous renal, or kidney, cryoablation, the fastest growing cryoablation treatment. Last January the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued for the first time a payment code for percutaneous renal cryoablation, a procedure that allows physicians to destroy small tumors in the kidney by inserting a probe directly through the skin and freezing the cancerous tissue.

Data were also presented on the effectiv
