Microsulis Medical to define microwave ablation’s role in surgery
DENMEAD, England – June 28, 2012: Microsulis Medical Ltd will be exploring microwave ablation’s (MWA) therapeutic role at a major surgical conference in Paris next week. The microwave ablation specialist’s Satellite Symposium is part of the industry programme at the 10th World Congress of the International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (IHPBA), which will be attended by 2,500 clinicians from across the globe.
Microsulis, an IHPBA gold sponsor, specialises in minimally invasive microwave technology for the coagulation, or destruction, of soft tissue. Clinicians have successfully used the company’s Acculis MTA system for interventional therapy and as an aid to resection, coagulating tissue in the liver, lung and kidney.
Leading Microsulis Medical’s IHPBA symposium will be some of the international surgical community’s established microwave users:
· Moderator - Professor John Primrose, University Hospital Southampton, UK
· Speaker - Dr David Iannitti, Carolinas Medical Center, US
· Speaker - Associate Professor Eduard Jonas, Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden
· Speaker - Professor Bernard Nordlinger, Hôpital Ambroise Paré, France.
Dr Iannitti will open the presentations by sharing his experience of how to use microwave ablation in surgery. Associate Professor Jonas will follow with a study of the application of microwave to achieve the best outcomes in different procedures. Professor Nordlinger will then investigate ablation’s role in conjunction with surgery and chemotherapy.
The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion to consider what trials are needed to define MWA’s role in the surgical community’s armamentarium.
The symposium ‘Is MWA now an established therapy? Where does it fit and how do we evidence it?’ takes place in Room Maillot, at the Palais des Congrès de Paris, between 12.30pm and 2pm, on Tuesday July 3.
