Evaluation of Deployment Capability and Accuracy of an Outside the Scope (OTS), Detachable Catheter System for Ablation of Peripheral Lung Lesions: An Ex-Vivo Human Lung Model Study

Official Title

Evaluation of Deployment Capability and Accuracy of an Outside the Scope (OTS), Detachable Catheter System for Ablation of Peripheral Lung Lesions: An Ex-Vivo Human Lung Model Study

Summary:

A novel OTS detachable probe system carried outside and along the flexible bronchoscope has been developed. Using this novel system, the operator can deploy the probe in the target bronchus and lesion and completely detach the scope from the probe.

Trial Description

Primary Outcome:

  • accuracy of the deployment method
Lung ablative therapies have growing interest in the treatment of early-stage primary lung cancer in surgical high-risk patients and as part of multimodal treatment in patients with large lesions or metastatic malignant disease in the lungs. Endobronchial ablative strategies allow deliver y of these therapies through a natural orifice and minimally invasive approach, potentially improving safety and reducing related morbidity. Application and deployment of this system allows the operator to have constant control of the airway, preventing life-threatening hemoptysis and other complications. We hypothesize that this novel detachable OTS system can be successfully deployed in the peripheral parenchymal target with potential clinical applications in the near future.
