PURPOSE To demonstrate the efficacy and predictability of a new conductive interstitial thermal therapy (CITT) device to ablate surgical margins. METHOD The temperature distributions during thermal ablation of CITT were calculated with finite element modelling in a geometrical representation of perfused tissue. The depth of ablation was derived using the Arrhenius and the Sapareto and Dewey (S&D) models for the temperature range of 90 to 150 degrees C. The female pig animal model was used to… CONTINUE READING
