Microwave ablation energy delivery: influence of power pulsing on ablation results in an ex vivo and in vivo liver model.

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the impact of continuous and pulsed energy deliveries on microwave ablation growth and shape in unperfused and perfused liver models. METHODS A total of 15 kJ at 2.45 GHz was applied to ex vivo bovine liver using one of five delivery methods (n = 50 total, 10 per group): 25 W continuous for 10 min (25 W… CONTINUE READING
