A first TBLC sample was obtained through a flexible cryoprobe of 115 cm in length and 1.9 mm in diameter (ERBE, Medizintechnik GmbH, Tubingen, Germany) inserted into the guide sheath.
NMR spectra were acquired using a Bruker Avance III HD 600 MHz spectrometer operating at 600.13 MHz and equipped with a TXI CryoProbe at 300 K.
Biopsy via cryoprobe, first used in 1968, has mainly been employed in the management of obstructive endobronchial tumors.
All the HSQC spectra were recorded at 298 K on a Bruker Avance III HD 600 MHz equipped with cryoprobe at the Department of Environmental, Biological and Pharmaceutical Science and Technology, University of Campania-Luigi Vanvitelli (Caserta, Italy).

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurement was performed on Avance I (Bruker) spectrometer operating at 400.13 MHz ([sup.1]H), equipped with a 5 mm QNP probe head, or an Avance II (Bruker) spectrometer operating at 700 MHz ([sup.1]H), equipped with a cryoprobe and a field gradient delivering z-field gradients.
For the [sup.1]H NMR measurement, the liquid extracted from RBC was recovered with CD[Cl.sub.3], and the [sup.1]H NMR spectra were recorded by Bruker AVANCE 600 MHz (14.1 T) spectrometry using a 5 mm TXI cryoprobe. The NMR spectra are assigned with reference to the NMR lipid database.
In the experience reported in this paper, we preferred the use of cryoablation because it presents many advantages with respect to other ablative techniques; in fact, cryoablation bears the possibility of treating larger lesions by using more than one cryoprobe, causes less pain due to the intrinsic pain control of the tissue cooling, and can be performed under local anesthesia and conscious sedation.
7), with three ground lines radiating from that central location: one to the TPW maintenance system vacuum Dewar, one to the battery box, and one to the top of the QVNS cryoprobe. From the top of the QVNS cryoprobe, there is a connection to the liquid helium Dewar.
