The Edison System, developed by HistoSonics Inc., utilizes histotripsy, a non-invasive technique that uses intense sound energy to destroy liver tumors. It employs pulsed ultrasound waves to create “bubble clouds” within the tumor, resulting in its destruction without the need for surgical excision.
No, the procedure is done under general anesthesia to minimize patient discomfort. Patients may experience minimal discomfort post-procedure, but the non-invasive nature of histotripsy reduces the risk of pain during treatment.
Edison liver surgery is suitable for patients with cancerous or benign liver tumors who may not be candidates for traditional surgical methods due to health conditions or other factors. The non-invasive nature of the procedure makes it an option for patients who are too frail or sick to undergo conventional surgery.
Edison liver surgery offers several advantages, including minimal risk of infection, bleeding, or other complications associated with traditional surgery. It also provides a non-invasive alternative for patients who may be ineligible for surgical excision due to health concerns.
