  • Clinical Indication
  • Bone Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally-invasive procedure used to treat bone tumors, as well as Osteoid Osteoma. During a RFA procedure for bone tumor a radiologist uses a CT guidance to place a electrode to the tumor. A radiofrequency current will generate heat to the tumor tissue. Then heat will eliminate the tumor.

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) can be applied to Osteoid Osteoma. The main purpose of treatment is to reduce patient’s pain.

VIVA RF Generator
The VIVA RF Generator is designed to create the predictable and consistent ablation zone by using the optimized ablation modes for various nodules. It also has convenient and useful functions including to the easy operation structure and smart User Interface to provide the exact information related to procedure details which is able to be translated to computer for recording patient treatment data.
VIVA multi RF Generator
The VIVA multi RF Generator is designed to create the predictable and consistent ablation zone by using the optimized ablation modes for various nodules. It also has convenient and useful functions including to the easy operation structure and smart User Interface to provide the exact information related to procedure details which is able to be translated to computer for recording patient treatment data.
star RF Electrode-Fixed
The star RF electrodes of fixed type are intended to be used in percutaneous, intraoperative and laparoscopic approaches in radiofrequency ablation procedures. Coolant circulation system of electrode maintains suitable impedance at the surface of electrode. It also prevents tissue adjacent to active tip from charring and helps to make a spherical ablation zone.
VIVA RF Electrode
The VIVA RF electrode is single electrode which is designed to be used in multiple nodules. Traditional single electrodes make the fixed ablation volume, but it is able to make the varisized ablation volume by adjust an active tip.
