Abstract

The paper compares thermal ablation on perfused and not perfused porcine liver produced by 17 and 14 Gauge non internally cooled (NIC) microwave (MW) applicators. To the knowledge of the authors this comparison, already made using cooled applicators has not so far been carried out with uncooled applicators that have a very different thermo-kinetic behavior when they operate inside a biological tissue. The purpose of this preliminary study is to explore the possibility of using ex vivo perfused liver in order to define an optimal protocol to allow more reliable translation of the experiments to the clinical practice and compare the obtained results with those of previous studies that used similar energy delivery.
