INTRAVESICAL MICROWAVE (RF) INDUCED THERMO-CHEMOTHERAPY FOR THE TREATMENT OF NON-MUSCLE INVASIVE BLADDER CANCER
Synergo® is an advanced, minimally invasive technology for the treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). The treatment is based on controlled RF radiation (non-ionising microwave radiation) of the bladder tissue, along with instillations of the bladder with chemotherapy (thermochemotherapy). The patient is treated on an outpatient basis in a series of weekly one-hour treatments with no need for anaesthesia. Synergo® System is a computer-embedded intravesical irrigation system combined with an energy-delivering unit. The System includes an RF generator that delivers radiofrequency energy at 915 MHz (the lower limit of microwave electromagnetism), a drug circulating unit, and a microprocessor with application specific software. The user interface consists of a computer, monitor with touch screen, and barcode reader. The software monitors and records treatment parameters in real-time during the treatment session. The Synergo® transurethral RF ablation applicator is used for the drug intravesical instillation. The applicator is equipped with an integrated miniaturised RF antenna that radiates the bladder walls and 5 thermocouples (miniature thermometers) that monitor the bladder tissue temperature during the treatment.
The use of Synergo® was approved by the European Standard Authorities (CE) in 2001. Since then the treatment has become available in many leading medical centres. So far, thousands of patients have been treated with Synergo® worldwide and many studies (including randomised trials) have been conducted over the years. The Synergo® technology has been proven safe and efficacious in the treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer in numerous routine treatment studies and clinical trials that have been published since 1995.
