Oncothermia system for the treatment of prostate diseases
Oncothermia: how the method works and how it is used The EHY-1000 system combines the ability to treat both malignant (CA) and benign (BPH) prostate tumours When used for the treatment of malignant tumours, the EHY-1020 targets the tumour cells selectively and accurately, even if it is located far from the central lumen.
Oncothermia enables you to selectively destroy the tumor tissue without harming the healthy tissue. This selection is of particular significance for the treatment of prostate carcinomas in which the malignant tissue is usually mainly found in the peripheral zone of the prostate.
The EHY-1000 series has been specially developed for prostate treatment. With the EHY-1020, both malignant and benign tumours (BPH) can be treated. In addition to the system itself, a special catheter set is required for the treatment, which consists of a catheter and counter electrode.
The EHY-1020 fl oor-mounted system is compact and easy to use. The method has been successfully used by our customers for many years. The treatment has no side effects or risks for the patient. The results of the treatment are excellent and nevertheless many unpleasant side effects that are known from other forms of treatment can be avoided.
Over the years, our R&D specialists have continuously improved the prostate treatment system and adapted it to our customers' wishes. Long-standing experience has helped us perfect the application and make it as comfortable as possible for the patients. The design has also been continuously improved to fi t harmoniously with the equipment and fittings of modern hospitals and practices.
