Endocare, Inc., an innovative medical device company focused on the development of minimally invasive technologies for tissue and tumor ablation, recently unveiled the first cryoablation probe that provides physicians the ability to "sculpt" different sized isotherms (ice balls) to encompass tumors and tissues based on individual patient anatomy and needs. The new probe, called the V-Probe(TM), will be demonstrated by Endocare at the 2006 Annual Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA) held May 20-25 at the Georgia World Conference Center in Atlanta.
