This study hypothesized that an ex vivo renal perfusion model can create smaller microwave ablation (MWA) measurements during perfused states compared with nonperfused states across multiple device settings. Nine bovine kidneys, a fluoroscopic compatible perfusion model, and a commercially-available clinical MWA system were used to perform 72 ablations (36 perfused and 36 nonperfused) at 9 different device settings. Comparing perfused and nonperfused ablations at each device setting, significant differences in volume existed for 6 of 9 settings (P < .05). Collapsed across time settings, the ablation volumes by power were the following (perfused and nonperfused, P value): 60 W, 2.3 cm3 ± 1.0 and 7.2 cm3 ± 2.7, P < .001; 100 W, 5.4 cm3 ± 2.1 and 11.5 cm3 ± 5.6, P < .01; and 140 W, 11.2 cm3 ± 3.7 and 18.7 cm3 ± 6.3, P < .01. Applied power correlated with ablation volume: perfused, 0.021 cm3/W and R = 0.462, P = .004, and nonperfused, 0.029 cm3/W and R = 0.565, P < .001. These results support that an ex vivo perfused organ system can evaluate MWA systems and demonstrate heat sink perfusion effects of decreased ablation size.
