Barrett's epithelium is approximately 500 µm thick. The HALOFLEX Energy Generator and the HALO Ablation Catheter electrode array are designed to work in concert to achieve a uniform, superficial depth of ablation between ~500 µm and ~1,000 µm.
Human Esophagus Specimen (H&E Stain)
The proprietary technology incorporated in the HALO System is designed to maximize clinical outcomes and completely remove the Barrett's epithelium without significant injury to the underlying tissue.
The geometry of the bipolar electrode array helps to precisely control the depth of ablation to < 1,000 µm
