Fiberoptic Microneedle Device for Convection-Enhanced Thermochemotherapy of Malignant Glioma
This invention allows diffuse convection-enhanced delivery of chemotherapy to tumors unreachable by direct surgical intervention. The device employs simultaneous co-delivery of fluid agents and laser energy at multiple infusion points to improve coverage of tumor margins. Previous similar methods have recently failed to meet clinical endpoints in Phase...
