Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Interventional therapy is commonly applied to the treatment of arterial aneurysm. Thermal ablation features rapid and minimal invasive treatment. A hypothesis of combining these two techniques was proposed to treat arterial aneurysm. An antenna is delivered with a catheter into the aneurysm sac and heated with microwave or RF, and hence induces instant coagulation and thrombosis of blood flow in the aneurysm sac so that the treatment motivation is achieved. The initiation of this hypothesis is to overcome the disadvantages of biological/mechanical mismatch between the interventional devices and the arteries in the interventional therapy, also utilize the advantages of rapid treatment and minimal invasion in the thermal ablation procedure.
