MINNETONKA, Minn., June 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — American
Medical Systems® (AMS) (Nasdaq: AMMD), a leading provider of world-class devices
and therapies for both male and female pelvic health, today
announced the 510(k) clearance of its revolutionary MoXy™
Liquid Cooled Fiber.
Designed to be used with the recently launched GreenLight
XPS™ (Xcelerated Performance System), the MoXy liquid-cooled
fiber provides fast and efficient tissue vaporization. MoXy’s
Active Cooling Cap™ technology utilizes 360-degree saline
flow to maintain the temperature of the fiber tip for dramatically
increased fiber longevity. The GreenLight XPS 180-watt laser
combined with the MoXy fiber delivers 50 percent more power than
the GreenLight HPS® (High Performance System) 120-watt system
and a 50 percent increase in the laser beam area resulting in a
faster and wider area of tissue vaporization. The new system
maintains the same safety profile as the proven GreenLight HPS and
PV systems, even with the increase in power and beam area.
“The MoXy fiber gives physicians the ability to utilize the
GreenLight XPS system to its full potential for the treatment of
enlarged prostate,” said Joe Martin,
senior vice president and general manager of BPH Therapies at AMS.
“Vaporization efficiency is significantly improved to enable the
removal of twice the tissue—as compared to our GreenLight HPS
system— to effectively cut treatment time in half.”
