What Is Brachytherapy?
Esophageal brachytherapy is a procedure involving the use of radiation in a very selective way to target the affected area in the esophagus while sparing unaffected tissue to radiation exposure. Prior to placing the brachytherapy applicator, a surgeon will insert an endoscope (a flexible tube with a camera at the tip) to identify the location of the tumor. Once that location has been determined, the brachytherapy applicator will be placed into the esophagus and secured in place with inflated balloons. The applicator will then deliver a very accurate dose of radiation.
- A non-surgical option for esophageal cancer.
- The E-App offers fewer treatments than traditional radiation therapy with no hospital stay.
- Treatment with the E-App minimizes side effects and allows you to continue your normal daily activities.
- Option for palliative treatment or tumor management.
- Potential quality of life improvements.
Why choose the Esophageal Applicator (E-App™)?
We felt that the overall immobilization was better than other products we reviewed. The option to have the respiratory belt is very positive. Overall patient comfort is better. The ease for the physician to inhibit respirations is essential to the setup and treatment.
