Cryoablation for the Treatment of Neurological Conditions
Cryoablation is a type of medical process that utilizes extremely cold
temperatures as a means of destroying tissue, and today it is used in
many different types of medical applications. A typical procedure uses
hollow needles placed into or near diseased tissue, which needs removal
for the health of the patient. When in place, the freezing unit will cool
the tip of the probe, which then cools down the surrounding tissues.
This begins the destruction of the diseased tissue by forming ice crystals
in the cells. These crystals will cause issues within the cells of the
tissue, stopping them from healing. The reduced temperature also coagulates
the blood, which stems the blood flow to the tissue and aids in cellular
death. It also begins the process of apoptosis, also known as "cell
death cascade." Combined, these three elements help to ablate or
destroy the tissue.
Different Types of Cryoablation
Many different types of cryoablation are in use today. Most of the time,
the procedure involves placing the needle through the skin and into the
affected tissue. However, sometimes, surgical procedures or laparoscopic
procedures are the best choice for dealing with certain types of diseased
tissue that might not be reachable through other methods. Cryoablation
is an effective option for dealing with a number of different types of
health issues, and it can be highly effective. It is important to speak
with an expert neurologist to find out if this technique is right for you.
