SpaceOAR SystemThe SpaceOAR System reduces rectal injury in men receiving prostate cancer radiation therapy by acting as a spacer – pushing the rectum away from the prostate and out of the high dose radiation region.
SpaceOAR HydrogelThe hydrogel spacer is injected during a minimally invasive procedure (see image on left), and — once in place — patients typically can’t feel it. The hydrogel is safe and similar to other products used in brain surgery, cardiology and ophthalmology. It remains in place for 3 months during radiation treatment, and is then absorbed and leaves the body in the patient’s urine — leaving nothing behind. SpaceOAR System has been has been clinically proven and studied in a US Clinical Trial and is FDA cleared for sale in the US.
