A 3-dimensional ultrasound system developed at our institution was used to guide and verify cryoprobe
The subject of the contract consists firstly, the replacement of a low-field NMR spectrometer (200 MHz to be removed) by a high field spectrometer (500 MHz minimum) with a sample changer and two sensors: a cryoprobe
and a hot head probe (Lot # 1), secondly, by acquiring accessories (cryoprobe
and sample changers) to be installed on high field NMR present in the service (Set # 2).
After this company was sold in 2005, Dr Altman became a partner of CryoProbe
, a cryogenic probe technology company.
Finally, the electronically chilled cryoprobe
is used to rapidly chill the area being treated.
attached to a cryoplatform (the preamplifier cooling unit).
7,8) In 1977, Rodgers and colleagues demonstrated that the endobronchial application of a cryoprobe
to tracheal stenoses in sheep was not only safe but that the lesions healed with minimal submucosal fibrosis?
A pre-cooled MGJT cryoprobe
is the focus of this paper.
The resulting closed-cycle cryoprobe
is extremely compact, can operate indefinitely, and does not require ventilation.
needles filled with circulating liquid nitrogen transform the prostate into an iceball, resulting in substantial tissue destruction and death of benign and malignant cells.
Moreover, as the enlarging ice ball approaches a ureter or another key structure, its progress can be halted by turning off a particular cryoprobe
Cryoassisted lumpectomy, which involves ultrasound-guided prelumpectomy insertion of a cryoprobe
through the center of the tumor via a 3-mm incision, appears to facilitate more accurate tissue resection and to decrease positive margin rates, said Dr.
