Centre de Cancérologie de la Porte de Saint-Cloud in Boulogne unveils the latest advance in completely non-invasive brain tumor therapy

May 23, 2023 — ZAP Surgical Systems, Inc., a leading innovator in the field of surgical robotics, today announced that Centre de Cancérologie de la Porte de Saint-Cloud (CCPSC) in Boulogne, France, has initiated patient treatments with the ground-breaking ZAP-X Gyroscopic Radiosurgery platform. CCPSC is the first in France to offer ZAP-X and is part of the renowned American Hospital of Paris, known for offering the most innovative technologies and most advanced treatment methods. CCPSC treated three patients on their first day, each with a single brain metastasis.

As a non-invasive and painless treatment for select primary and metastatic brain tumors, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) has proven to provide equivalent to superior outcomes compared to costly and potentially debilitating surgeries. SRS is typically delivered in one to five brief outpatient visits and patients often return to normal activity the same day as the procedure.

“Because of the significant percentage of cancer patients who develop brain metastases, it was imperative we support our radiation oncology program with a dedicated SRS solution such as ZAP-X,” said Dr. Bacem Belghith, radiation oncologist at the CCPSC.

“As ZAP-X is designed specifically for cranial radiosurgery it allows us to treat the most challenging cases with confidence,” added Dr. Alain Allaw, radiation oncologist at the CCPSC. “And unlike multi-purpose radiotherapy devices, ZAP-X provides patients with potentially lower healthy brain exposure to radiation, and thus enables greater flexibility for our clinical team to treat recurring brain metastases patients.”

The ZAP-X system uses unique gyroscopic mobility to direct radiosurgical beams from hundreds of angles to precisely concentrate radiation on the tumor target. This pioneering approach supports the clinical objective of protecting healthy brain tissue and patient cognitive function.

As the first and only vault-free and cobalt-free dedicated SRS delivery system, ZAP-X also eliminates the expense of building costly shielded radiation treatment rooms, and removes the need to maintain, secure and regularly replace live radioactive isotopes.

“As the first center to retrofit an existing shielded radiotherapy suite, ZAP-X has seamlessly integrated into CCPSC’s busy radiation oncology department, and now serves as the centerpiece of an elite SRS program,” said Hakan Baraner, ZAP Surgical’s Senior Vice President for Europe, India, Middle East, and Africa (EIMEA). “ZAP is incredibly honored to support CCPSC in bringing world-class care to their patients.”
