China based microwave ablation (MWA) medical device developer, Baird Medical, has received approval from China’s National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) for its disposable MWA needle to treat benign thyroid nodules.

The MWA device operates similar to radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and uses a thin needle to distribute microwaves to the targeted area.

The company insists the recent approval of its device will allow them to supply safe and advanced MWA products to treat thyroids while simultaneously continuing to offer minimally invasive treatments for patients with large thyroid cysts, nodular goiters, and patients who are unable to undergo surgery.

Commenting on the recent NMPA approval, Ms. Haimei Wu, CEO of Baird Medical said: “Our recent approval from China’s NMPA for our Class III disposable MWA needle is a testament to our unwavering commitment to scientific rigor, quality, and safety. We are proud of the strides we have made as a leading force in the development and provision of MWA devices.”

The company hopes the Class III certificate for its MWA needle will help streamline their sales process and give them an opportunity to expand its range of available specifications and models tailoring their sales strategy to an individual disease.

They also claim the certification will support a number of benefits for patients such as reduced costs compared to open surgery, fewer complications, reduced damage to surrounding tissues, reduced operation times, and the preservation of thyroid function post-surgery.
