The First and Only FDA-Approved Technology for the Enhanced Detection of Bladder Cancer.
Bladder Cancer affects over a half million patients in the US and >80,000 new cases are expected per year. It is the #4 cancer in men and is observed in men 3-4 times more than women. Treatment is difficult since bladder tumors look similar to normal, healthy tissue. Due to this challenge, bladder cancer can be easily missed or incompletely removed and it has the highest rate of recurrence of all cancers according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Blue Light Cystoscopy with Cysview utilizes Photodynamic Diagnosis (PDD) to highlight cancerous bladder tumors in a bright pink color during surgery. It offers the following advantages over standard white light cystoscopy:
The 2-part PDD system consists of Blue Light Flexible Cystoscopy for on-going surveillance while the patient is awake, and Blue Light Rigid Cystoscopy for fluorescence guided resection with the UH400 Surgical generator.
The value of KARL STORZ Blue Light Cystoscopy with Cysview® 2 Part System comes from treating more bladder cancer patients more effectively. It can attract new patients and retain current ones by offering a better standard of care, which has been proven through excellent real-world outcomes, a strong recommendation by the AUA/SUO, and increased adoption and patient volume at top medical centers.
