Indications for Use:
The Emprint™ SX Ablation Platform with Thermosphere™ Technology is intended for use in percutaneous, laparoscopic, and intraoperative coagulation (ablation) of soft tissue, including partial or complete ablation of non-resectable liver tumors. The Emprint™ SX Ablation System is not intended for use in cardiac procedures. The system’s optional, 3-D navigation feature assists in the placement of the Emprint™ SX Navigation Antenna with Thermosphere™ Technology using real-time image guidance during intraoperative and laparoscopic ablation procedures. The navigation feature enhances the output of a compatible medical ultrasound imaging system and displays an image of the antenna and its predicted trajectory on a computer monitor. The size and shape of the predicted ablation zone relative to the position of the antenna is displayed on the enhanced ultrasound image.

Contraindications:
The Medtronic Emprint SX Ablation platform is not indicated for use in cardiac procedures.  Microwave ablation procedures are not recommended for pregnant patients. Potential risks to the patient and/or fetus have not been established. Microwave ablation procedures are not recommended for patients with cardiac pacemakers or other implanted electronic devices. Potential risks have not been evaluated. Do not defibrillate a patient with an antenna inserted. Completely remove the antenna from the patient before defibrillation. Do not use the field generator during cardiac defibrillation. 

Risk Information:
Common patient risks include: blood clot, infection, injury to adjacent tissues, pain, post-ablation syndrome.
Remote patient risks include: arrhythmia, arteriovenous fistula, ascites, bleeding, cancer seeding, cardiac arrest, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbation, hematoma, hemolysis, hepatic infarction, hyper/hypotension, hypersensitivity/allergic reaction, ischemia, liver decompensation, mortality, obstruction, reproductive sterility, respiratory failure/arrest, urinary retention.
