The only viable choice was something called phenolic-impregnated carbon ablator (PICA), which had been developed at Ames in the 1990s for the Stardust mission--the first to return samples from a comet, and the fastest atmospheric reentry in history.
Effective March 2017, Bovie Medical's PlazXact Ablator will be marketed as the UltrAblator Bipolar series .
2, in which oxy-acetylene (0-A) torch is exposed on the surface of the ablator, i.e.
At its tip the needle carries an MRI-compatible thermal ablator. The MRI scanner provides real-time feedback of the needle location as well as real-time thermal dose monitoring using MR thermometry.
Thus, on the one hand, the characteristics of the ablators chosen need to be determined.
Prior to performing endometrial ablation by thermal balloon (Therm a Choice (Gynecare, Somerville, NJ, USA)), circulated hot fluid (Hydro Therm Ablator (Boston Scientific, San diego, CA, USA)), cryotherapy (Her Option (American Medical Systems, Minnetonka, MN, USA)), radiofrequency electrosurgery (NovaSure (Cytyc, Marlborough, MA, USA)) or microwave energy (MEA) it is necessary to measure total uterine axial length.
According to our findings, the duration of atrial electrogram more than 40 ms, recorded by the ablator catheter previously the ablation and the presence, during the delivery of slow junctional beats with a cycle length longer than 550 ms are parameters that describe the electrophysiological properties of successful slow pathway RF ablation.
After extensive study, NASA has selected the Avcoat ablator system for the Orion crew module.
The space agency had originally baselined Phenolic Impregnated Carbon Ablator (PICA), but in subsequent testing it was outperformed by Avcoat.
For more than three years, NASA's Orion Thermal Protection System Advanced Development Project considered eight different candidate materials, including the two final candidates, Avcoat and Phenolic Impregnated Carbon Ablator, or PICA, both of which have proven successful in previous space missions.
