Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the C2 CryoBalloon™ Full and Swipe Ablation Systems for the ablation of human esophageal epithelium in patients scheduled to undergo esophagectomy for reasons unrelated to the objective of the study

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Esophageal Cancer Device: CryoBalloon™ Full Ablation System Device: CryoBalloon™ Swipe Ablation System Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The primary outcomes for the study are the safety and treatment effect of the C2 CryoBalloon™ Ablation System. An esophagectomy will be performed as scheduled following the ablation procedure; histopathological analysis of surgically-resected specimens will be performed.

Arm Intervention/treatment
CryoBalloon™ Full Ablation System
To evaluate CryoBalloon™ Full Ablation System for the ablation of 360 degrees of human esophageal epithelium in patients scheduled to undergo esophagectomy.
Device: CryoBalloon™ Full Ablation System
Tissue Ablation using CryoBalloon™ Full Ablation System
Other Name: CryoBalloon Ablation System (360)

CryoBalloon™ Swipe Ablation System
To evaluate CryoBalloon™ Swipe Ablation System for the ablation of 90 degrees of human esophageal epithelium in patients scheduled to undergo esophagectomy.
Device: CryoBalloon™ Swipe Ablation System
Tissue Ablation using CryoBalloon™ Swipe Ablation System
Other Name: CryoBalloon Ablation System (90)




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of the CryoBalloon™ Full and Swipe Ablation System [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Number of participants with serious, device-related adverse events after treatment with the CryoBalloon™ Swipe Ablation System

  2. Effect of Ablation to Submucosa at Different Depth of Tissue Ablation Using the CryoBalloon™ Full and Swipe Ablation Systems [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]

    Evaluated by depth and uniformity of ablation effect in the esophagus based on histopathologic assessment.

    Dose response by effect of ablation to submucosa:

    0: Normal

    1. Inflammatory cell infiltration
    2. Separation with inflammation
    3. Edema and Necrosis


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Device Performance: Average Procedure Time [ Time Frame: Minutes from start to end of procedure ]
    Average Procedure time as measured from start to finish of ablation.

  2. Device Performance: Ease of Deployment of Device [ Time Frame: Minutes, from start to end of procedure ]
    Likert Scale measuring physician satisfaction. 0 (worst) to 10 (best)
