Microwave Ablation

A new technology, microwave ablation (MWA), destroys liver tumors using heat generated by microwave energy. With microwave ablation, the surgeon inserts a small laparoscopic port or open incision to access the tumor. A CT scan or ultrasonic guidance is used to pinpoint the exact location of the tumor. A thin probe, which emits microwaves, is then inserted into the tumor. The probe produces intense heat that ablates (destroys) tumor tissue, often within 10 minutes.

Microwave ablation has number of advantages when compared to traditional RFA. The Microwave ablation (MWA) is faster than RFA, destroying tumors more efficiently, and reducing the time patients remain under general anesthesia. With MWA, surgeons can ablate multiple liver tumors at the same time and can ablate larger tumors than are possible with RFA.
