The Cliniporator® and the Cliniporator®VITAE have different types of electrodes for targeted interventions.
The electrode is selected depending on tumour accessibility and the size and number of cancer nodules to be treated.
The electrical field is applied to each individual pair of adjacent needles, in a sequence controlled by the Cliniporator® and the Cliniporator®VITAE. This electrical current induces the process of electroporation.
All electrodes are supplied sterile and disposable.
Adjustable hexagonal configuration needle electrodes
For treatment of cutaneous and subcutaneous lesions up to 3 cm deep. Depth of needle penetration can be changed as required and safely retracted at the end of the procedure. Adjustable electrodes avoid convergence of the needles and assures better control during skin penetration.
Adjustable linear needle electrodes
For treatment of small cutaneous and subcutaneous lesions up to 3 cm deep. Depth of needle penetration can be changed as required and safely retracted at the end of the procedure. Adjustable electrodes avoid convergence of the needles and assures better control during skin penetration.
For the treatment of small lesions in anatomical cavities (up to 1 cm deep).
For the treatment of cutaneous exophytic lesions. The electrical field is distributed uniformly between the two plates.
Individual needle electrodes
For the treatment of bone or visceral lesions (VGD series). The electric pulses are delivered through the individual needle electrodes positioned around or within bone or visceral lesions under brilliant viewer guidance, CT scan or ultrasound guidance.
The use of a cardiac synchronisation system leads the delivery of the electric pulses during the absolute refractory period of the heart, allowing the Cliniporator® and the Cliniporator® VITAE to perform a safe treatment of visceral tumors also in proximity of the heart.
The treatment with the Cliniporator® VITAE can be planned thanks to the proprietary PULSAR® software that leads the treatment by acquiring DICOM images.
