Abstract

Safe and effective percutaneous CT-guided radiofrequency ablation of spinal osteoid osteomas can be performed using a targeted navigational bipolar electrode system. Articulating bipolar electrodes with built-in thermocouples along an electrode shaft and variable generator wattage settings allow optimal nidus access, particularly in challenging locations; provide precise real-time monitoring of ablation zone volume and geometry; and minimize the risk of undesired thermal injury.
