Forward Academy™ C2 CryoBalloon™ Ablation (CBA)

C2 CryoBalloon™ ablation (CBA) has emerged as an important tool for the treatment of Barrett’s esophagus, a pre-cancerous condition of the esophagus. It is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive procedure that has been shown to effectively eradicate esophageal dysplasia and metaplasia, ultimately reducing the risk of developing esophageal cancer.* 

However, like many endoscopic techniques, it requires appropriate training to achieve the best possible results. For this purpose, we are pleased to launch the Forward Academy training on C2 CryoBalloon™ ablation.

This course will provide a valuable opportunity for you to enhance your knowledge and expertise in this field.

We look forward to seeing you in Hamburg!
