Thermal ablation is a process of destruction of tissue by heating it with microwave or radiofrequency techniques so that cells cannot survive in a targeted area without damaging to other tissues. Thermal ablation is used in various fields namely fibroids, liver cancer, epilepsy, varicose veins and others. With the help of focused ultrasound transducers along with various size the damaged tissue can be controlled accurately. Most of the devices use radiofrequency technology to heat tumor tissue, thermal ablation device with radiofrequency helps in predictable the volumes of tissue are ablated. Thermal ablation is a minimally invasive procedure consist of catheter with a thin needle electrode introduced in tumor under imaging guidance and energy deposited through electrode by this catheter produces heat of the surrounding tissues which helps in sooner recovery and improved safety of patients.
Thermal ablation devices market are witnessing robust growth owing to increasing prevalence of chronic disease along with aging population which lead to increase in volume of minimal invasive surgery having benefit over traditional surgical procedures and cost effective treatment. In addition, less procedure timelines, low risk and damage to tissue with minimally invasive procedure drives the thermal ablation devices market in near future. However, with inadequate imaging, defined size of clotting area reduce the performance of the thermal ablation and negative effect of treatment can hamper the thermal ablation devices market.
