Cardium's InnerCool Announces New Tissue-Specific UroCool(TM) System for Use in Prostate Surgeries
Date:11/11/2008

r robotic-assisted technique) can reduce tissue damage and inflammation and thereby provide a faster return of bladder control (continence) and possibly erectile function (potency). From a practical viewpoint, they liken this concept to icing a severely sprained ankle in order to minimize tissue injury and shorten the recovery process.

InnerCool's UroCool(TM) catheter is being incorporated into ongoing clinical studies at the University of California, Irvine, which are designed to provide additional information regarding the safety and usefulness of cooling during robotic-assisted prostate surgery. Dr. Ahlering, who is conducting the clinical studies, is an expert in the field of prostate surgery, particularly in the rapidly expanding use of robotic-assisted prostatectomy systems such as the da Vinci(R) system, which is a product of Intuitive Surgical, Inc.

"Our findings using localized cooling techniques during robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy surgery indicate that cooling resulted in a statistically significant faster recovery of urinary continence following surgery," noted Dr. Ahlering. "In addition, based on my surgical experience with therapeutic cooling, I believe that our ongoing studies may offer the potential to demonstrate improved post-operative erectile function for patients as well." Drs. Ahlering and Finley's clinical data on hypothermic radical prostatectomy was recently presented with an award at the European Robotic Urologic Symposium in Prague and their findings are now being published as a Rapid Review in the medical journal Urology (in press). Their data will also be presented at a number of U.S. and international urological meetings over the remainder of 2008 and early 2009.

"InnerCool has now developed a specialized tissue-specific cooling catheter that is being developed to work with InnerCool's current Celsius Control Console which has been marketed and sold since 2003," stated Christopher J. Reinhard, Chairman and
