Radiofrequency Therapy Systems, Tissue Ablation, Intraarticular

Definition : Tissue-ablation radiofrequency (RF) therapy systems designed to ablate regions in the joints during arthroscopic procedures. These systems consist of an RF generator; an applicator (e.g., a catheter), typically with needlelike electrodes at the tip to be introduced into the joint; and thermocouples to record tissue temperature. Some systems include temperature controls. The electrode configuration may be bipolar or monopolar, including a neutral electrode that is placed on the body surface. Intra-articular ablation RF systems are used for cutting and coagulation of tissue during minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures (e.g., meniscectomy, ligament resection).
