Ablation of Prostate Tissue in Patients With Intermediate Risk Localized Prostate Cancer

2019-09-19 03:56:54 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this research study is to collect information on a new treatment of prostate tissue participants with intermediate risk prostate cancer using a medical device called the Poseidon System. The Poseidon System is intended to ablate prostate tissue in areas of the prostate where cancer has been identified. The medical device delivers thermal energy in the form of water vapor to the prostate tissue through the urethra. Previous research has shown successful prostate tissue ablation. Additional research may help show successful ablation of the prostate tissue where cancer is located.
