The device is a through-the-scope, highly compliant balloon catheter that is simultaneously inflated and cooled by an inert refrigerant delivered from a small disposable handheld unit. The C2 Therapeutics Cryoballoon® is intuitive, fast, cost-effective, and eliminates the need for precise sizing, multiple deployment steps, and larger controller units.
