The Visual Ice Cryoablation System is intended for the cryoablative destruction of tissue during minimally invasive percutaneous procedures.
The Visual Ice System features a mobile console with a large HD touch screen user interface to control the circulation of high-pressure gases (argon for freezing, helium for thawing) through closed-tip cryoablation needles connected to the system. The system incorporates i-Flow™ Technology, a proprietary software algorithm that optimizes performance of each cryoablation needle.
This system controls the use of i-Thaw™ needles to actively thaw ice without the use of helium and the use of needles with CX features to perform FastThaw without helium or perform track ablation to minimize the potential for track seeding.
Real-time temperature monitoring, through thermal sensors connected to the system, enables procedural control to protect critical anatomy.
