Can nanoknife ablation done as multiple percutaneous probe insertions actually known to cause an embolism? Procedure was not open surgery.
Here are some...: Nanoknife ablation is a descriptive term portraying the use of high-tech small probes to deliver the energy of freezing or radio frequency to destroy unwanted tissue or cancer; so, it is not an open surgery, but has its own limitation especially in tumor size and location.

Depends: The success rates of ablation procedures depend mostly on the rhythm that is being ablated. For some arrhythmias such as SVT or atrial flutter, long term success rates upwards of 95% are very common. Ablation for atrial fibrillation typically results in 1-2 year AF free rates around 70+%. Sometimes a combination of medication and ablation can improve freedom from arrhythmia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Either one: There really is no good answer to that question. The procedures are equally effective for most women. If your uterus is larger then 8-9 cm, your physician may choose thermal ablation which may be better for larger uterine cavities. If your procedure is done in the office, my experience has been that novasure is somewhat better tolerated and certainly quicker for the patient. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What tests (if any) is a surgeon required to have a patient get done before performing an ileostomy reversal surgery?
Depends: Depending on your medical issues, medications and recent past testing you may not need any new testing. Often surgeons will at least ask for a blood count to make sure you aren't really anemic(low red blood cell count) and that your platelet numbers are fine(too low and the risks of bleeding go up) and coagulation studies(if they are abnormal the risk of bleeding can go up too). Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What procedure would be the least evasive for an individual with mild lupus, the essure or tubal ligation using laparoscopy?
Yes, but depends: "minimally invasive" is a broad term. But many lesions can be done with "minimally invasive" techniques. And new techniques are being developed with catheters (which don't involve scalpels/surgery at all). The method of surgery often depends on the type of heart defect, so please discuss this with your child's cariologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Usually.: Assuming you are asking about atrial fibrillation ablation - the surgical technique either requires a sternotomy (open chest) for the typical maze procedure, or through smaller incisions in the chest wall (minimally invasive maze). Both are more invasive than the catheter ablation technique, which only requires needle punctures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
