Radiofrequency Therapy Systems, Tissue Ablation, Prostatic

Definition : Tissue ablation radio-frequency (RF) therapy systems designed to ablate regions of the prostate. These systems consist of an RF generator; a catheter to be introduced into the prostatic urethra or rectum, sometimes with capability to deploy needlelike electrodes from its tip; sleeves to prevent the exposure of untargeted tissue; thermocouples to record ablation and prosthetic temperature; and a neutral electrode that is placed on the body surface. Prostatic ablation RF systems are used for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia and cancer of the prostate.
