Watch a periacetabular ablation procedure with discussion by Dr. Julien Garnon.
The OsteoCool RF Ablation system is cooled radiofrequency (RF) ablation technology. It offers simultaneous, dual-probe capabilities for treating painful bone tumors.
Coaxial, bipolar technology delivers RF energy to the site, and automatically moderates power to keep RF heating within the desired treatment range. This reduces risk of potential thermal damage to adjacent tissue.1
The active tip of the ablation probe is internally cooled with circulating water. RF energy heats the tissue while circulating water moderates the temperature close to the active tip. This combination:
The OsteoCool RF ablation probes are sterile and intended for single use.DOWNLOAD THE OSTEOCOOL BROCHURE
You’ll find flexibility with a wide range of ablation scenarios for your patient and procedural needs:
The Medtronic bone access toolkit includes a tapered cannula, sharper trocar, and enhanced drill design – a system that allows improved access to sclerotic bone.2* These tools are compatible with the existing OsteoCool™ RF ablation probes.
- Offer faster access to sclerotic bone2*
- Reduce the force required to advance the tool2*
- Are versatile for use for all cases
The OsteoCool™RF Ablation bone access kits are indicated for percutaneous access to bone.
