MINNETONKA, Minn., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- American Medical Systems® (AMS) (Nasdaq: AMMD), a leading provider of world-class devices and therapies for male and female pelvic health, today announced the worldwide launch of its revolutionary MoXy™ Liquid Cooled Fiber for laser treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate.
Designed to be used with the recently launched GreenLight XPS™ (Xcelerated Performance System) 180 Watt laser, the MoXy fiber, with its Active Cooling Cap™ technology, utilizes 360-degree saline flow to maintain the temperature of the fiber tip for dramatically increased fiber longevity. This combination is 50 percent faster in vaporization speed than the GreenLight HPS® (High Performance System) 120 Watt system, significantly reducing treatment time and operative cost. The new system maintains the same safety profile as the proven GreenLight HPS and PV systems, even with the increase in power.
The MoXy fiber is immediately available in the United States, Europe and Australia. Worldwide commercialization will continue throughout the remainder of 2010.
XPS with the MoXy fiber is the latest in AMS' world-class portfolio of innovative, technologically advanced solutions to treat a variety of pelvic health conditions.
