Multicenter Study to Evaluate a New Robotic Device for Image-guided Percutaneous Needle Placement

2020-01-21 11:31:40 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates the safety and performance of a new robotic device in the treatment of hepatic thermoablation in adults. The new robotic device will be used in all patients.


The device is a user controlled, stereotactic accessory intended to assist in the planning and manual advancement of needle, as well as in verification of needle position during CT guided percutaneous ablation procedures.

After validation of the correct positioning of the needle, the tumor ablation procedure is conducted with a device routinely used by the investigator. The Acquisition of a post-interventional CT-guided image is realized to evaluate adverse events occurrence.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cholangiocarcinoma arising near or at the confluence of the right and left hepatic ducts (COMMON HEPATIC DUCT). These tumors are generally small, sharply localized, and seldom metastasizing.

Nanometer sized fragments (the dots) of semiconductor crystalline material which emit PHOTONS. The wavelength is based on the quantum confinement size of the dot. They are brighter and more persistent than organic chemical INDICATORS. They can be embedded in MICROBEADS for high throughput ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY.

The local implantation of tumor cells by contamination of instruments and surgical equipment during and after surgical resection, resulting in local growth of the cells and tumor formation.

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 edges of tissue removed in a surgery for assessment of the effectiveness of a surgical procedure in achieving the local control of a neoplasm and the adequacy of tumor removal. When the margin is negative or not involved by tumor (e.g., CANCER) it suggests all of the tumor has been removed by the surgery.
