Bipolar RF Technology for CPPS Treatment
Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate
gland, often resulting in swelling or pain. The term
prostatitis is defined as microscopic inflammation of
the tissue of the prostate gland, which spans a broad
range of clinical conditions.
of categories, but today commonly accepted variations of the
disease include nonbacterial, acute, and chronic. Prostatitis is a
disease causing intense pain and discomfort to males between
the ages of 25-55. Existing treatments in present market are
insufficient in effectively relieving symptoms
The latest approach to prostatitis treatment is "Thermotherapy"
- a method of treating the prostate via heat which either
eliminates or alleviates prostatitis symptoms. A safe and effective
treatment is the Tempro thermal treatment, performed with
the help of radio frequency waves, which create a controlled
heat to the prostatic tissue.
Tempro treatment presents an innovative approach of thermal
RF treatment. Tempro treatment offers a unique bipolar RF technology which leads to a personalized
treatment for each patient according to its Prostatic Urethra Length (PUL). Tempro treatment is safe
and effective and does not require cooling systems or rectal temperature probes. Tempro thermal treatment
showed improved quality of life for many patients.
Tempro thermotherapy offers treatment with pain-sensitivity profiles for the individual patient. The treatment
may be performed with high, medium or low heating profiles to maximize patient comfort during treatment.
The treatment area is chosen according to the Prostate Urethra Length (PUL) for localized treatment, by
applying energy to different electrodes. Tempro treatment incorporates a unique computer controlled RF
generator which enables bipolar treatment. Tempro treatment procedure is short and simple.
The unique features of Tempro include the 6-ring electrode, mounted on a silicone coated
16 FR latex foley catheter. Three simultaneous temperature controls measure the highest
prostate treatment temperature during treatment. The temperature time graphs are constantly
displayed on the screen, ensuring control over the treatment. Bipolar technology enables
concentrated RF energy transmission to the prostate with minimal energy delivery to the
surrounding tissue. RF energy used in Tempro allows predictable heat patterns without hot spots. Due to the
small diameter of the treatment applicator, its insertion is smooth and painless.
Tempro possesses a unique bipolar radio-frequency energy source. Tempro applicator can be adjusted to
different prostate lengths by activating a variable number of rings according to prostate urethra length. Tempro
applicator has 3 sensors which continuously monitor the prostates maximum temperature. The controlling
computer will automatically shut down the system if an abnormality occurs. Treatment by Tempro does not
need any anesthesia/sedation and is performed in a single session in a doctor's office with analgesia. Tempro
device is mobile, easy to operate and is fully equipped with a computerized control and printer for printing of
patients' summary forms and files; including post-treatment and statistical analysis of results.
