First Clinical Data for EchoLaser for TPLA Presented at AUA 2022
By: National Ultrasound
"Our company was finally able to showcase EchoLaser at AUA, after several cancellations of past editions of this important congress due to Covid-19; I am glad that in conjunction with our physical presence at AUA, Dr. Bianco presented data from his trial," said Joe Williams, CEO of National Ultrasound, exclusive USA distributor of Elesta (manufacturer of Echolaser).
"EchoLaser is a clinically proven technology supported by a growing number of studies in different European countries and China. Results presented by Dr. Bianco are the first USA data. In a few weeks, patients in the USA will have easier access to this treatment; in fact, effective July 1st, a new CPT code will be available for "Transperineal laser ablation of benign prostatic hyperplasia, including imaging guidance". Reimbursement from commercial payers is critical to ensure a broad adoption in the USA and the new CPT specific code is therefore very important" added Fabio Andreola, CEO of Elesta.
National Ultrasound announced its exclusive partnership with Elesta, a manufacturer of the Elesta Echolaser EVO, in 2020. The Elesta Echolaser EVO is an ultrasound machine series with micro-invasive procedures. It is currently the only micro-invasive treatment option that doctors can use in the United States.
The Elesta Evolaser EVO comes with disposable fiber optics and introducer needles. The Echolaser Smart Interface (ESI) provides real-time guidance and verification during a procedure. Multiple laser sources allow professionals to tailor treatment for the patient.
