The Visica® Procedure

Cryoablation technology is used to ablate breast tumors in a minimally invasive procedure.


#

Ultrasound imaging is used to locate the lesion. The breast is prepared and a local anesthesia is given.

#

Using ultrasound guidance, a Visica cryoprobe is positioned in the center of the lesion.


#
The needle is removed from the breast and a sterile bandage is placed on the incision site.
#

A 3 mm incision (about 1/8 inch) is made in a cosmetically and technically appropriate location.

#

The cycle is activated and an icefall forms around the tumor. The freezing temperatures destroy the tumor tissue.
