IceCure's ProSense® a Promising Alternative Treatment for Extra-Pelvis Endometriosis: Independent Study Presented at ECR 2024

  • MRI reveals disappearance of hemorrhagic signal and development of necrotic changes
  • Pain reduced from a median of 7 on a scale of 0 - 10 to a median of 1, with some patients reporting 0  

CAESAREA, Israel, March 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- IceCure Medical Ltd. (Nasdaq: ICCM) ("IceCure" or the "Company"), developer of the ProSense® System, a minimally-invasive cryoablation technology that destroys tumors by freezing as an alternative to surgical tumor removal, today announced that results from an independent study conducted at University Hospital, Nimes, France, titled "BEYOND PAIN: Cryoablation of endometriotic nodules using liquid nitrogen" were presented at the European Congress of Radiology ("ECR") 2024 in Vienna, Austria on February 29, 2024.


Five doctors participated in the study, including interventional radiologist and ProSense® user Prof. Julien Frandon, who has previously led hands-on training sessions with ProSense® at multiple medical conferences.

The investigator-initiated single-site study enrolled 7 women, ages 30-45 years, with endometriosis in the abdominal wall and para-diaphragmatic areas. Treatment with ProSense® cryoablation took about 30 minutes.

One month following treatment, assessment by MRI revealed hemorrhagic signal had disappeared and necrotic changes developed. All patients were satisfied with the treatment and reported their pain decreased from a median of 7 on a visual analog scale of 0 –10 to a median of 1, with some patients reporting 0.

The study concluded that based on the investigator's experience, ProSense® and single-probe percutaneous cryoablation with liquid nitrogen appears to be a promising alternative that offers speed, minimally invasive qualities, safety and more cost-effective treatment of extra-pelvis endometriosis. Since the results are based on a limited number of patients, further data is required with a larger patient cohort to gain comprehensive understanding of this treatment approach.

Prof. Frandon commented, "At our hospital in Nimes, we use ProSense®️ because, as a single probe, liquid nitrogen-based system, it's easier for our team of interventional radiologists to use than traditional multi-probe, argon-based systems. Since 2019, we have performed more than 150 ProSense®️ procedures with great efficacy, safety and patient satisfaction. I'm happy to see a growing number of indications treated with cryoablation, benefitting patients from early, minimally-invasive intervention."

"While surgical removal would have been the standard of care treatment for endometriosis nodules, ProSense® gives interventional radiologists and other practitioners a safe and effective minimally-invasive option. We are very pleased that all patients treated in this study were relieved of their endometriosis condition and pain within as little as a month following treatment," stated IceCure CEO Eyal Shamir.
