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 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.
