Microwave Ablation Treatment
What Is Microwave Ablation?
Microwave Ablation is a form of thermal ablation used in interventional radiology
MWA uses electromagnetic waves in the microwave energy spectrum (300 MHz to 300 GHz) to produce tissue-heating effects.
These microwaves create heat around the needle, which heat and destroy the cancer cells. Heat closes small blood vessels and lessens the risk of bleeding. The dead tumor cells are gradually replaced by scar tissue
Microwave ablation (MWA) is a minimally invasive technique that has been used to treat benign and malignant tumors of the LIVER, LUNG ,KIDNEY ,BONE ,BREAST AND BENIGN THYROID NODULES.
MWA is based on thermal injury secondary to heat generated from rotation of water molecules and have several advantages in tumor ablation.
Advantages of MWA (Microwave ablation):-
- Local Anesthesia
- Obviates need for admission to Hospital
- Less Morbidity
- Faster return to normal activities
- More pleasing esthetic outcomes
