High-power Low-frequency Ultrasound: a Review of Tissue Dissection and Ablation in Medicine and Surgery

Brendan O'Daly, Edmund Morris, Graham Gavin, John O'Byrne & Garrett McGuinness
High-power low-frequency ultrasound in the range 20–60 kHz has wide ranging clinical applications in surgical and medical instruments for biological tissue cutting, ablation or fragmentation, and removal. Despite widespread clinical application and common device operating characteristics, there is an incomplete understanding of the mechanism of tissue failure, removal and damage. The relative contribution of cavitation, direct mechanical impact and thermal effects to each process for specific tissue types remains unclear. Different and distinct mechanisms and...
