InSightec Ltd Receives Approval of Chinese Food and Drug Administration for ExAblate system

InSightec Ltd. announced that its ExAblate system received approval of the Chinese Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) for non-invasive treatment of uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that grow in the uterus. 20%-50% of women of childbearing age suffer from uterine fibroids. Hysterectomy, surgical removal of the uterus, is the most common form of treatment. ExAblate combines high intensity focused ultrasound waves and continuous MRI guidance and monitoring. The focused ultrasound energy is used to ablate or destroy the fibroids while the MRI images are used to plan and guide the therapy and monitor treatment outcome. ExAblate benefits are that it is incisionless, requires no hospitalization, has a high safety profile with low risk of infection and complications, and rapid recovery.
