The Monteris Medical NeuroBlate® System enables MRI-Guided Neurosurgical Ablation. It is the only system which monitors ablation contours in 3-Dimensions and provides real time imaging to support the surgeon’s clinical decisions. The NeuroBlate System employs diode laser energy, delivered via a gas-cooled, fiber-optic probe which allows surgeons to safely approach, and selectively ablate, soft tissue and lesions in the brain that may have been previously deemed inoperable. The NeuroBlate System provides a new level of Controlled Access, Contoured Ablation, and Confirmed Margins.

The System is the Solution

The NeuroBlate System is a combination of hardware, software and disposable surgical devices used with an existing MRI scanner. The integration of these devices allows the neurosurgeon to precisely direct an MRI compatible, gas cooled laser probe to a desired target, administer laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) and monitor thermal dose using real time MRI thermometry data. At Monteris, we like to say “The System is the Solution”.

The NeuroBlate System Laser Delivery Probe is a small, CO2-cooled side-firing fiber optic probe which allows minimally invasive entry into the target area. The cooled Laser Probe helps deliver controlled thermal energy and provide contoured ablation of the target with no charring of tissue.

Indications for Use
The Monteris Medical NeuroBlate® System (formerly known as the AutoLITT® System) has received United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for the following Indications for Use:

  • The Monteris Medical NeuroBlate System is indicated for use to ablate, necrotize or coagulate soft tissue through interstitial irradiation or thermal therapy in medicine and surgery in the discipline of neurosurgery with 1064 nm lasers.
  • The Monteris Medical NeuroBlate System is intended for planning and monitoring thermal therapies under MRI visualization. It provides MRI-based trajectory planning assistance for the stereotaxic placement of MRI compatible (conditional) NeuroBlate Laser Delivery Probe. It also provides real-time thermographic analysis of selected MRI images.
  • When interpreted by a trained physician, this System provides information that may be useful in the determination or assessment of thermal therapy. Patient management decisions should not be made solely on the basis of the NeuroBlate analysis.
