Cardioblate CryoFlex 10-S Surgical Ablation Probe

Where Flexibility and Control Converge

Summary

The Cardioblate® CryoFlexTM 10-S Surgical Ablation Probe optimizes malleability and shape retention to provide secure tissue apposition and produce linear lesions. With added rigidity compared with the standard Cardioblate CryoFlex probes, the 10-S Probe is firm enough to secure tissue contact, yet easy to reshape by hand multiple times.

Increased Rigidity

The CryoFlex 10-S Probe is more rigid than the standard CryoFlex probes. The 10-S Probe is hand malleable, but the increased rigidity makes it a better option for surgeons desiring a more substantial cryoablation instrument.

The distinctly malleable Cardioblate® CryoFlex™ 10-S Surgical Ablation Probe

The tip of the probe can be custom shaped quickly by hand to meet the specific needs of the surgical case.

Hand Malleable

The tip of the probe can be custom shaped quickly by hand to meet the specific needs of the surgical case. A shaping tool is not required to control the contour of the CryoFlex probe.

Adjustable Insulation Sheath

The ablation length of the probe tip can be adjusted using a sliding insulation sheath, helping to shield non-targeted tissue.

Argon-powered Cryoablation

Argon gas is the coldest ablation source commercially available for the surgical treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. The CryoFlex probe reaches temperatures of approximately -150°C in test freezes.1


Important Safety Information

Potential adverse events with this device are similar to other cardiac surgery procedures and may include the following: bleeding; re-operation; extension of extracorporeal bypass; heart rhythm disturbances (atrial and/or ventricular); pericardial effusion; pericarditis; cardiac tamponade; pleural effusion; mediastinitis; conduction disturbances (SA /AV node); acute ischemic myocardial event; thrombus formation; low cardiac output; stroke; renal, gastrointestinal or respiratory complications; sepsis; adjacent structural damage; and death.
