Radiofrequency Therapy Systems, Tissue Ablation, Ophthalmic
Definition : Tissue ablation radio-frequency (RF) therapy systems designed to ablate regions in the eye. These systems consist of an RF generator (13.56 MHz is typical) with power and time controls and a handpiece with appropriate electrodes (superficial or interstitial) according to the intended application. Ophthalmic tissue ablation RF systems are used for hemostasis and other procedures, including coagulation necrosis of intraocular tumors; coagulation is also used in retinal reattachment (welding) procedures.
