Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9932041A1] A cell necrosis is used to reduce a volume of a selected site of an anatomical structure. An energy delivery device is coupled to a distal portion of a handpiece. The energy delivery device has a tissue piercing distal end. A pressure plate is positioned at an exterior of the energy delivery device to prevent excessive penetration of the energy delivery device into the tissue.
