Radiofrequency ablation is the elimination of tissues with a pronounced pathological change by burning out an electric current with a certain frequency – radio frequency. The current is generated in an electric generator and is directed to the area with pathology inside the organ by an electrode, the shape of which is determined by the technical task and the size of the neoplasm. Sometimes multiple electrodes are used.
Radiofrequency ablation treatment can be used for a wide range of pathological processes in both surface tissues and internal organs. The main method of ablation plays a role in the possibility of removing pathological changes without tissue incision. Radiofrequency ablation can also be combined with open surgery through a classic incision.in some clinical situations, endoscopy – laparoscopy-is used for more accurate electrode placement.
How does treatment
The essence of this procedure is that after you are given pain relief services, then the action is aimed at inserting a 100-150 mm long guide needle under the control of the EOP to the facet nerve on the side of the damaged joint and inserting an electrode connected to the generator through it. The approach of the needle to the nerve at the optimal distance can be felt by the appearance of a buzzing or tingling sensation while maintaining the voltage at values up to 0.5 V. All this time you are conscious, completely relaxed.
After the procedure is completed, a specific anesthetic is injected into the site of exposure. Only then is the guide needle removed.
