Acculis Microwave Tissue Ablation (MTA) System

FullMTAsystem

The Acculis MTA System is used to deliver energy to soft tissue for the purpose of thermal coagulation using microwave energy technology. For use during open, percutaneous and laparoscopic surgery, the MTA system achieves large fast controlled ablations. It is designed for physicians who are trained in the use and application of image-guided ablation procedures, intraoperative ultrasound and/or CT guided needle placement.

The applicator is available in three lengths: 14 cm (standard), 19 cm (intermediate) and 29 cm (long). This gives the user flexibility in selecting the appropriate length to reach the target tissue area.

IMPORTANT RISK INFORMATION

INDICATION FOR USE: The Accu2i pMTA Applicator  is intended for intraoperative coagulation of soft tissue. CONTRAINDICATIONS: The Accu2i pMTA Applicators are contraindicated in patients with heart pacemakers and other electronic device implants. WARNINGS & PRECAUTIONS: Do not place the applicator in the patient until the applicator has been connected, successfully primed and the LCS Ready symbol is showing on the control unit. Use only Sterile Saline for the coolant reservoir. Patient injury may occur in the event of a coolant leak if non sterile saline, water, or other liquids are used. Use of a smaller coolant reservoir will increase the rate of coolant temperature rise. Do not energise the applicator unless coolant flow can be observed in the applicator handle. DO NOT bend the Accu2i pMTA Applicator as this may impair the function of the cooling system and may damage the microwave feedline inside the applicator. DO NOT apply lateral forces on the ceramic tip of the applicator on insertion, during use or during removal as this may cause the ceramic to break and cause injury to the patient or user. Failure to locate the temperature probes and monitor the temperature levels of adjacent tissues, vital structures, ducts, vessels, or nerves could result in an unintended thermal injury. DO NOT energize the Accu2i pMTA Applicator unless the ACTIVE REGION of the applicator is fully inserted into target tissue. If the applicator is not properly located into the selected tissue, an unintended thermal injury to the user, or an unintended injury to tissues, vital structures, ducts, vessels, or nerve tissue may occur. Do not re-energise an applicator that has not been visually inspected between uses. Re-energising the applicator without visually inspecting for damage may result in unnecessary patient injury as the Accu2i pMTA Applicator may not function. Failure to remove the applicator following a fault condition could result in thermal injury to user or patient due to thermal conduction from tissue in the heated coagulation zone. Attempting to re-use an Accu2i pMTA Applicator and coolant reservoir following a Fault condition may result in unnecessary patient injury as the Accu2i pMTA Applicator may not function. Refer to individual product IFUs and/or User Manual to see full Warnings, Precautions and Contraindications. CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
