Description

From Which Medical Device

According to Covidien, the Emprint microwave ablation device is not significantly affected by cooling from vessels in close proximity to the tumour. They say that smaller vessels will be destroyed within the tumour and tumour cells adjacent to larger vessels will also be destroyed but the vessels preserved. 

The device was FDA approved in April 2014.
