Multi-Lumen Balloon Takes Center Stage at SenoRx AAPM Booth

July 29, 2009 - SenoRx is featuring the Contura Multi-Lumen Balloon (MLB) Catheter for delivering brachytherapy to the surgical margins following lumpectomy for breast cancer in booth 762 at the AAPM 51st Annual Meeting that is taking place in Anaheim, Calif., from July 26-29. SenoRx representatives are demonstrating how Contura is a leader in MLB breast brachytherapy. The Optimal Design enables improved dosimetric coverage of targeted tissue while minimizing the dose to healthy tissue and lungs. Built-in vacuum ports help to aspirate seroma or trapped air providing uniform balloon cavity adherence.
Contura’s polyurethane construction provides balloon symmetry. With its dose-shaping balloon design, physicians are able to treat women who are normally not candidates for APBI with single-lumen balloon catheters. Some patients who are candidates for balloon therapy are currently excluded because of the location of the lesion and their breast size. Contura's advanced multi-lumen design may address this issue for certain patients.
As a result, more women can benefit from five-day brachytherapy.
SenoRx offers several alternatives to get you up to speed on 3D CT based planning using Contura MLB.
