Title: METHOD & APPARATUS FOR PERFORMING CRYOTHERAPY OF DISTAL LUNG LESIONS
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates generally to cryosurgery apparatuses and systems for and methods of treatment of distal lung tissue or lesions, and more particularly to guided cryogenic delivery to a distal treatment area within lung tissue via a low-profile, high pressure, closed-tipped catheter or probe configured to pass through a working channel of a bronchoscope and extend to a distal region of the lung.
