NeuWave™ Microwave Ablation Systems

Utilizing the US market-leading microwave ablation technology, the NeuWave™ portfolio of products sets a new practice in thermal ablation, offering comprehensive solutions that allow physicians to ablate lesions of many shapes and sizes with predictability and precision.1*

NeuWave™ Microwave Ablation Systems

Microwave ablation offers a minimally invasive option for a significant patient population with medically inoperable soft tissue lesions

TARGETED

Microwave ablation is a targeted procedure that helps spare healthy tissue and may help preserve organ function.2

EFFICACIOUS

Microwave ablation is efficacious in ablating soft tissue with a low complication rate.3 Guidelines and emerging evidence are helping to expand the recommendation for the use of microwave ablation.

FAST

Most microwave ablation procedures are completed with 5-10 minutes active ablation time with many patients leaving the hospital the same or following day as the procedure.4**

ECONOMICAL

Microwave ablation may be associated with a lower treatment cost compared to other procedures such as radiofrequency ablation and surgical resection.5

Verify Probe Placement. Confirm Technical Success.

Ablation Confirmation Software is the only available integrated in-procedure confirmation software with enhanced visualization tools to help evaluate probe placement and confirm the technical success of procedures.

The provided ablation zones (Length x Diameter) data were obtained in ex-vivo bovine liver, porcine kidney and bovine lung. Ex-vivo results may not indicate similar in-vivo results. Each case has unique characteristics that impact the actual in-vivo ablation zone size and shape.
