Biopsy Track Ablation Device and Method Thereof
The present invention relates to a biopsy track ablation device and method thereof. The biopsy track ablation device generally includes a) an introducer having an elongate body which terminates at a distal end portion, said distal end portion has a tapered edge, and opposite end of the introducer is an open end provided with an axially extending notch; b) a biopsy needle having an elongated body which terminates at a tapered distal end portion, a tray is provided to sever the tissue, and opposite end of the biopsy needle is partially received by a handle; characterized in that, the biopsy track ablation device includes: a heating element selectively provided at introducer, track ablation needle, or a guiding means, such that said introducer, track ablation needle, or a guiding means is energized by the heat element as to their respective distal end portion is instantaneously heated to a temperature sufficient to cauterize biopsy track, wherein the heating element serves to conduct heat to an outer cannula of the distal end portion of the introducer, track ablation needle, or a guiding means.
