CLS Americas & Focalyx Present Integrated Fusion-Guided Focal Laser Ablation Solution at FOCAL 2022 Conference

Combined products enable minimally-invasive, high precision laser focal therapy of prostate tumors in an office or clinic.

CLS Americas, a subsidiary of Clinical Laserthermia Systems AB, and Focalyx Technologies, developer of image-guided fusion target devices, today announced the companies will exhibit and demonstrate their respective TRANBERG™ Thermal Therapy System for focal laser ablation and Focalyx® Fusion medical device at the FOCAL 2022 Conference being held September 22-24, 2022 in Los Angeles. The conference theme is Frontiers in Oncologic Prostate Care and Ablative Local Therapy.”

The TRANBERG™ System is designed to work with multiple MR/US fusion image guidance systems for precise and accurate tumor ablation in a minimally invasive, outpatient setting. Compared to other focal therapies, focal laser ablation therapy has demonstrated higher levels of precision and accuracy with lower risk of side effects, such as erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.

CLS Americas is excited to demonstrate our new office-based, fusion-guided, focal laser ablation solution to FOCAL 2022 attendees in conjunction Focalyx Technologies and Urological Research Network”, stated Michael Magnani, president of CLS Americas. “The treatment process and workflow is very similar to the workflow for fusion-guided, transperineal prostate biopsies and cryoablations. This reduces the learning curve for urologists already familiar with these procedures.”

In the US, over one million prostate biopsies are performed every year leading to a diagnosis of prostate cancer for almost 250,000 men. These patients are demanding emergent therapies as alternatives to the standard treatments that have shown to carry long term harmful side effects.

Some current treatment options for prostate cancer tumors expose patients to unacceptably high complications rates for erectile dysfunction or urinary incontinence”, said Dr. Fernando J. Bianco, Investigator-In-Chief for the Urological Research Network. “Based on my clinical trial experience with CLS’s TRANBERG laser, I believe that partial gland fusion focal laser ablation provides the precision to successfully treat the cancerous lesions while offering patients a superior side effect profile.”

Dr. Fernando J. Bianco, Investigator In-Chief for the Urological Research Network, a Florida-based, not-for-profit clinical research organization, will discuss his experience conducting his ongoing 20-patient, Phase I clinical study using the TRANBERG and Focalyx systems titled, “Targeted MRI/US Fusion Transperineal Laser Ablation of Low-to-Intermediate Risk Prostate Cancer.”

Dr. Fernando Bianco is widely recognized as a pioneer of fusion target therapies in the office setting under local anesthesia and respected throughout the international medical community as an innovative urologic oncologist. He began his comprehensive MRI/US, Transperineal Fusion program in 2013 and has since performed over 2,500 biopsies and 1,000 fusion target cryoablations in the office setting.
