Cryogenic liquids and gases (cryogenic nitrogen) for cryotherapy
Curing with cold
Cryotherapy is a technique that uses an extremely cold liquid or instrument to freeze and destroy abnormal cells. It is most widely used to treat skin conditions such as warts and lesions, but is becoming more common in advanced medical procedures including the treatment of tumors in the prostate, liver, lung, breast and brain as well as cataracts, gynecological problems, and other diseases. What makes cryotherapy such a versatile and popular medical procedure is its ability to pinpoint and freeze specific malignancies while sparing nearby healthy tissues and skin.
