International Robotic Urology Symposium Reports on Benefits of Cooling During Robotic-Assisted Prostate Surgery and Introduces InnerCool's New Investigational UroCool System
Date:1/14/2009

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardium Therapeutics (NYSE Alternext US: CXM) and its operating unit InnerCool Therapies, Inc., today announced that Thomas E. Ahlering, M.D., Professor and Vice Chair of the Department of Urology at the University of California, Irvine, and a pioneer in robotic prostate surgery, presented "Physiology of Surgical Injury Following Robotic-Assisted Prostatectomy, Is There a Role for Hypothermia?" at the International Robotic Urology Symposium (IRUS) being held in Las Vegas, Nevada January 12-14, 2009. Dr. Ahlering presented data on the potential benefits of pelvic cooling during robotic-assisted prostatectomy surgery. He introduced and discussed the benefits of InnerCool's new UroCool(TM) catheter system designed to induce localized cooling during both robotic and open prostatectomy surgeries. The Symposium, sponsored by the Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, attracts internationally renowned physicians in robotic prostatectomy, female urology, gynecology, kidney, pediatric urology, and adrenal and single-port laparoscopy.

The findings presented by Dr. Ahlering and his colleague Dr. David S. Finley, M.D. using localized manual cooling techniques during robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy surgery indicated that cooling resulted in a significantly faster recovery of urinary continence following surgery. The results reported on 47 patients receiving hypothermia during robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (hRLP) who were prospectively compared with a standard robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RLP) cohort of 666 controls. Pelvic cooling was achieved using cold irrigation and an endorectal cooling balloon cycled with 4 degrees Celsius saline. Urinary continence was defined as requiring no urina
