1. (Pathology) the death of one or more cells in the body, usually within a localized area, as from an interruption of the blood supply to that part
2. (Botany) death of plant tissue due to disease, frost, etc

Temperatures near the electrode or antenna range between 60[degrees]C and 100[degrees]C, and this results in an area of instant coagulation necrosis (12, 13).
In-vitro trial of fibroadenoma samples exposed to different power levels:100 Watt (W), 200 W and 300 W, analysis of results shown that optimal ablation power 200W was enough for coagulation necrosis of tumour, while 300W ablation caused complete destruction of tissues.
The central area in which the tissue is irreversibly damaged and coagulation necrosis occurs is called the zone of coagulation.
Histologic evaluation of the pancreas revealed coagulation necrosis of entire lobules; severe regional necrotizing, fibrinous, heterophilic, histiocytic mesenteric steatitis; and multifocal, peripheral involvement of the viable pancreatic parenchyma (pancreatitis) (Fig 4).
During the ex vivo testing, settings of power delivery, depth of the puncture of electrodes, time required to create a safety zone of coagulation necrosis, and the adhesiveness of electrode needles were monitored.
Thus, the focal temperature may increase rapidly and an even temperature within the cancer may induce complete coagulation necrosis and effectively kill cancer cells.
The mechanism of action of high-intensity focused ultrasonography (HIFU) is coagulation necrosis and cavitation that is caused by high heat resulting from high-energy and low-frequency ultrasound (USG) waves applied in a small focal area.
Irregular germ cells, cells shedding into the lumen, and occasional coagulation necrosis were observed in testis tissue from group III (grades 3 and 4) (Figure 5).
The collagen in the superficial papillary dermis was homogenous, which corresponds to the presence of coagulation necrosis (Figure 4(a)).
Reversible or irreversible damage of areas surrounding the target tissue by the thermal effects of laser results in zone of coagulation necrosis. Delayed healing and a larger wound site may occur on increased time of laser application.
Coagulation necrosis has been described in approximately 25% of mediastinal lymphadenopathies and it is seen more often in malignancies; however, a necrotic lymph node raises concern for the presence of tuberculosis, fungal, or bacterial infections [3, 5].
13 -- High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a highly precise medical procedure that applies high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to locally heat and destroy diseased or damaged tissue through ablation.HIFU is one modality of therapeutic ultrasound, involving minimally invasive or non-invasive methods to direct acoustic energy into the body.In HIFU therapy, ultrasound beams are focused on diseased tissue, and due to the significant energy deposition at the focus, temperature within the tissue can rise to levels from 65deg to 85degC, destroying the diseased tissue by coagulation necrosis.
