Microwave Ablation System

The Evident™ microwave ablation system provides physicians with a powerful new tool to quickly and efficiently ablate soft tissue. This new microwave ablation system is intended for coagulation of soft tissue during percutaneous, laparoscopic and open surgical procedures. Microwave energy emanates from the feed point of the radiating section of the antenna, causing coagulation of the tissue. The system then creates heat by generating friction through the vibration of water molecules. With microwave ablation, there is no current flow through the patient, eliminating the need for grounding pads.
