Elmedical Bladder Wall Thermo-chemotherapy (BWT) treats nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) by the powerful heat-chemotherapy synergistic combination. BWT uses fast circulation of precisely heated mitomycin (MMC) solution which provides uniform high temperature over the entire bladder lumen and yet, stability and potency of the drug is maintained due to the BWT proprietary heat-exchanger.
BWT heat-chemotherapy synergy is very effective with excellent patients’ tolerance and clinical outcomes. Clinical results of BWT in a highly recurrent (median recurrence free interval of 5 months) group of high- and intermediate-risk NMIBC patients who all failed BCG and some also failed MMC stand-alone instillations already showed, with 8 years median follow-up, about 7X extended recurrence-free interval following BWT compared to each patient baseline.
Today, more than 10,000 BWT procedures have been performed successfully with very good results.
Elmedical systems are installed in Israel, Germany, Turkey, Spain, Italy, Czech Republic, Croatia, Colombia, Switzerland and Austria (and soon in Brazil).
Elmedical already performed successfully proof of concept procedures in overactive bladder (OAB), interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) and will start formal clinical trials in these diseases.
