Urologix, Inc., based in Minneapolis, is the leading provider for in-office BPH therapy. The company develops, manufactures, markets and distributes minimally invasive medical products for BPH treatment. Urologix' Cooled ThermoTherapy™ produces targeted microwave energy combined with a unique cooling mechanism to protect healthy tissue and enhance patient comfort. The Cooled ThermoTherapy™ product line includes the CoolWave® and Targis® Control Units and the CTC Advance® and Targis® catheter families. The Prostiva® RF Therapy System distributed by Urologix delivers radio frequency energy directly into the prostate destroying prostate tissue, reducing constriction of the urethra, and thereby relieving BPH voiding symptoms. Both of these products provide safe, effective and lasting relief of the symptoms and obstruction due to BPH.
Urologix' patented Cooled ThermoTherapy™ technology is creating effective treatment options for a wide range of patients with BPH. Cooled ThermoTherapy delivers precisely targeted microwave energy that heats and destroys enlarged prostatic tissue while unique cooling mechanisms protect surrounding healthy tissue and enhances patient comfort.
Prostiva® RF Therapy provides direct visualization with 360 degrees of precision which allows the urologist to treat the median and lateral lobe as well as asymmetrical prostates. This system is able to reach intraprostatic temperatures of 110°C allowing it to create a lesion in the tissue causing significant necrosis in just two minutes and 20 seconds. Experienced physicians report good patient tolerability with the utilization of a prostate block.
