Different ablation devices deliver the same type of energy but use individual control mechanisms to estimate efficacy. We compared patient outcome after the application of radiofrequency ablation systems, using temperature- or resistance-control in paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation (AF).

Comparison of combined bipolar radiofrequency impedance-controlled endometrial ablation with levonorgestrel intrauterine system versus bipolar radiofrequency endometrial ablation alone in women with abnormal uterine bleeding.
This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of the combination of bipolar radiofrequency impedance-controlled endometrial ablation (NovaSure) and levonorgestrel intrauterine system (LNG-IUS, Mirena) plac...
To determine if targeted and modulated radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the urinary bladder using our novel ablation device (Denerblate) reduces bladder nerve density, potentially leading to a novel s...
Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFA) is an effective treatment for atrial fibrillation. However, ablation lesions are usually only assessed functionally. The immediate effect of RFA on the tissue is...
The current treatment strategy for many patients with varicose veins is endovenous thermal ablation. The most common forms of this are endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA...
The study is a prospective multi-centre study to investigate the effect of a new bipolar ablation strategy of the left atrium in patients with paroxysmal or permanent atrial fibrillation o...
Radiofrequency ablation of the genicular nerves using ultrasound is safe and effective for treating intractable knee osteoarthritis pain by using either monopolar or bipolar radiofrequency...
The clinical effects of intra-operative radiofrequency ablation in patients with persistent or permanent atrial fibrillation and an indication for an implantation of a heart valve prosthes...
Expecting using bipolar RF at six points, in spite of potentially consuming more intraoperative time, to be more effective and long lasting in the management of pain resultant from chronic...
This is a single-arm, prospective study of a radiofrequency ablation device on the excised breast tissue of ten (10) prophylactic mastectomy patients. The ablation lesion created by the de...
The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.
Removal of tissue by vaporization, abrasion, or destruction. Methods used include heating tissue by hot liquids or microwave thermal heating, freezing (CRYOABLATION), chemical ablation, and photoablation with LASERS.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
The prototypical tricyclic antidepressant. It has been used in major depression, dysthymia, bipolar depression, attention-deficit disorders, agoraphobia, and panic disorders. It has less sedative effect than some other members of this therapeutic group.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
