Dune Medical Devices Hosts Symposium Featuring MarginProbe® System at European Breast Cancer Conference
Date:3/22/2012

VIENNA, March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dune Medical Devices, the manufacturer of the MarginProbe® System, held a satellite symposium featuring discussions with experts in the field of breast cancer regarding the treatment of women with early stage breast cancer and the importance of margin assessment in breast conserving surgery. The panel conducted a thorough review of clinical experience with the MarginProbe System, designed to improve a surgeon's ability to identify the presence of cancer on the margin of excised tissue during lumpectomy.  The event was held at The European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC) in Vienna, Austria, March 21, 2012.

Symposium moderator, Alberto Costa, M.D., Editor-in-chief of the journal The Breast, and the author of more than 250 scientific publications, said, "Current data shows that cancer is still present at the margin in over 20 percent of breast cancer patients after surgery, therefore requiring an additional operation.  We have long awaited a technology that could help improve our ability to remove all of a patient's cancer in one surgery.  The MarginProbe System represents a unique breakthrough for surgeons everywhere.  I am excited about the opportunity to be directly involved in the introduction of this product to surgeons in Europe."

The symposium, titled "Intraoperative Margin Assessment: MarginProbe®, Real-time Identification of Positive Margins for the Breast Surgeon," included results from multiple studies in over 1,000 patients throughout Europe, the United States and Israel from distinguished researchers. 

Mark Gittleman, M.D., a principal investigator in the pivotal U.S. trial of the MarginProbe System, described the significant increase in the ability of the surgeon to achieve a clear resection margin of the tumor in the breast during the first surgical intervention and to thus reduce the need for repeat surgeries.
