NEUWAVE™ Microwave Ablation System

A comprehensive solution with proprietary features designed to allow physicians to ablate lesions of many shapes and sizes with predictability and control.1*

NEUWAVE™ Microwave Ablation System

Features & Benefits

Address more patients with unique challenges

Address more patients with unique challenges

Provide a procedure option for unique patient challenges such as liver tumors that are difficult to resect, enable surgery for patients not typically considered for resection, ablate in addition to a resection, manage hemostasis with pre-transection coagulation (PTC), facilitate a bridge to transplants.

Help protect non-target tissue with the NEUWAVE™ PR Probe

Help protect non-target tissue with the NEUWAVE™ PR Probe

For lesions in challenging locations where non-target tissue or structures need to be protected. The NEUWAVE PR Probe is the only probe that offers distal energy control for precise, controlled ablations with a limited distance past the tip and limited ablation length to help protect non-target tissue.

Versatile probe portfolio to control the ablation size, shape and position

Versatile probe portfolio to control the ablation size, shape and position

Address the various needs of your patients with: NEUWAVE PR Probes with distal energy control, NEUWAVE LK probes for large single-probe ablations, minimally invasive 17 gauge probes and the ability to activate 2-3 probes simultaneously with multi-probe synchrony to reduce the risk of incomplete ablations.1

Reduce blood loss, procedure time and length of hospital stay with PTC

Reduce blood loss, procedure time and length of hospital stay with PTC

Utilize the dedicated surgical operating mode to create a plane of coagulation along the transection line (pre-transection coagulation or PTC) to help prepare for more hemostatic resections. Coagulation with microwave energy prior to resection has been shown to reduce blood loss, procedure time, and length of hospital stay.2

Overcome the many obstacles of radiofrequency ablation

Overcome the many obstacles of radiofrequency ablation

NEUWAVE microwave ablation offers significant benefits over radiofrequency ablation including: energy readily propagates regardless of tissue type or desiccation and is less susceptible to heat sink for more predictable ablations, larger single probe ablations and multi-probe capabilities and 2-4x faster ablations.4

Utilize CO2 enabled Tissu-Loc™ Technology to help reduce probe migration

Utilize CO2 enabled Tissu-Loc™ Technology to help reduce probe migration

Help reduce probe migration. CO2 cooled system with Tissu-Loc™ Technology. Tissu-Loc Technology creates an ice ball at the probe tip to “stick” the probe in place. This reduces the risk of probe migration during additional scanning.
