Protect healthy tissue during prostate radiotherapy

 

The BioProtect Balloon Implant is indicated for prostate cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.  The biodegradable balloon separates the prostate and rectum allowing physicians to irradiate prostate tumours while sparing healthy rectal tissue. With the balloon implant, safe dose escalation and hypofractionation are possible, dramatically decreasing the chances of rectal toxicity and improving biochemical tumour control.

 

 

  • Safe distance for dose escalation

    A safe 1.8 cm distance between prostate and rectum is created enabling dose escalation and hypofractionation. This dramatically reduces the risk for radiation-related complications.
     

  • Visible under CT, Ultrasound and MRI

    Balloon boundaries are highly visible under any imaging modality.

     

  • Reproducible separation

    A confined structure with a defined volume enable reproducible separation.
     

  • Simple deployment

    Simple transperineal deployment is possible under local or general anesthesia.
     

  • Biodegradable

    No need to remove the balloon surgically as it biodegrades within six months from implantation.
