BarrX HALO Ablation Treatment for Barrett's
Ablation Procedure

Removal of the Barrett's epithelium with the HALO360 System is an outpatient procedure that takes place in an endoscopic suite or operation room within a hospital.

Using standard endoscopic techniques under conscious sedation, the HALO360 System facilitates rapid ablation of long and short segments of Barrett's in two simple steps:

1. Size

Identify the anatomic landmarks and length of the Barrett’s epithelium by esophagoscopy.
Use the HALO360 Sizing balloon to measure the inner diameter of the esophagus and select the appropriately sized ablation catheter.

2. Ablate

Deploy the HALO360 Ablation Catheter
The catheter circumferentially ablates a 360°,
3-cm-long segment of Barrett’s epithelium in less than 1 second.

Results

A uniformly ablated epithelium. The consistent ablation depth of less than 1 mm avoids damage to the underlying tissue layers.
