American Urological Association (AUA) Clinical Guidelines Recognizes Cryotherapy as Treatment Option for Prostate Cancer Patients
Date:5/21/2008

The New Best Practice Statements Were Presented at the AUA Annual Meeting Being Held in Orlando, Florida

YOKNEAM, Israel and PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pennsylvania, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Galil Medical, a global leader in cryotherapy, announced today that the American Urological Association has introduced clinical guidelines with best practice statements for prostate cryotherapy. The guidelines state that cryoablation is a treatment option for men with clinically confined prostate cancer of any grade and that salvage cryoablation is a treatment option in men who have failed radiation therapy.

Prostate cryotherapy uses extreme cold to freeze and destroy prostate cancer cells. This minimally invasive procedure is routinely and successfully performed on prostate cancer patients with varying disease stages as well as those who have failed radiation treatment. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer, other than skin cancers, in American men. The American Cancer Society estimates that during 2008 about 186,320 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in the United States.

The American Urological Association (AUA), the premier professional association for the advancement of urologic patient care, routinely adopts clinical guidelines and best practice statements, releasing updates as technology improves. Dr. Richard Babaian, Professor and Senior Medical Director at the MD Anderson Physician Network, presented the new guidelines for cryotherapy for the treatment of localized prostate cancer at the plenary session of the AUA annual meeting.

Martin J. Emerson, Galil Medical President and CEO comments, "We are pleased that the AUA, in its preeminent role in assessing new treatment options for urologists and their patients, now recognizes cryotherapy as a mainstream treatment option for patients diagnosed with localized prostate cancer."
