An ex-vivo experimental study on optimization of bipolar radiofrequency liver ablation using perfusion-cooled electrodes.

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine optimal parameters for bipolar radiofrequency ablation (RFA) using perfusion-cooled electrodes to create a large ablation volume in ex vivo bovine liver. MATERIAL AND METHODS Three sets of RF experiments were performed using a 200-Watt generator and two 15-gauge perfusion-cooled or internally cooled electrodes in ex vivo bovine livers… (More)
