The Barrx™ 360 express RFA balloon catheter simplifies circumferential ablation with a self-adjusting balloon catheter that eliminates the sizing process—making treatments easier and more efficient, as well as reducing procedure time by up to 20%.*([FOOTNOTE=Based on comparison of average total operation time reported in B550 and SURF randomized clinical trials. Data on file, 2016.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Phoa N, van Vilsteren F, Weusten B, Bisschops R, Schoon E, Ragunath K, et al. Radiofrequency Ablation vs. Endoscopic Surveillance for Patients with Barrett's Esophagus and Low-Grade Dysplasia–A Randomized Clinical Trial.

The custom-fitting balloon catheter automatically inflates to the appropriate size based on the patient’s oesophagus. By removing the need to choose the right size catheter, this solution streamlines the ablation process and reduces time under anesthesia for the patient.
