For the neurosurgical procedure, a microwave probe with thermo-control system has beendeveloped. This newly-devised microwave probe has the advantage of hemostasis without extremetissue coagulation. This thermo-control system consists of the thermometer, the thermostat andthermo coupple (0.5mm in diameter). The tissue temperature was measured at three points (2mm, 4mm and 6mm) from the tip of the antenna of microwave probe. This probe is effective onmicrowave tissue coagulation and hemostasis of abnormal vesscles of AVM, neoplasms thatare difficult to deal with perform conventional surgical procedure.
