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.
