Radiofrequency ablation

HCC cells
No significant difference in overall survival (OS) and liver cancer-specific survival (LCSS) was found in patients with localized hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated with either cryoablation (cryo) or radiofrequency ablation (RFA), according to a study published in Anticancer Research. This… Read More

Endovascular denervation (EDN) can improve pain in patients with abdominal cancer and may offer a new approach to palliative care, according to a study published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology. The study enrolled 7 patients with diagnoses including pancreatic cancer (n =… Read More

A new study sought to determine if patient and facility demographics impacted overall survival in patients with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with radiofrequency (RF) ablation. Results published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology found that patients… Read More

A new study found no significant difference in overall survival (OS) for patients with early-stage non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with either radiofrequency (RF) ablation or stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). The study was published by the Journal of Vascular and Interventional… Read More

Patients with caudate hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) within the Milan criteria may experience better results with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) than with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), according to a study published in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology. Although HCC in the… Read More

Primary left-side colorectal cancer and a tumor size ≤ 3 cm were found to independently predict better oncologic outcomes for patients undergoing radiofrequency ablation (RFA) outcome in colorectal liver metastases. Researchers undertook the retrospective study to evaluate whether a primary tumor… Read More

Treatment of aneurysmal bone cyst using radiofrequency thermal ablation (RFTA) seems to be clinically successful and curative, researchers reported. There are a variety of treatments available for aneurysmal bone cysts, and some of these come with challenges for orthopedic surgeons, particularly… Read More
liver CT
In some patients with breast cancer liver metastases, surgical liver resection is not an option, but stereotactic radiofrequency ablation can be offered as a safe and minimally invasive alternative. Researchers reported their findings in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology. The… Read More
HCC cells
Radiofrequency ablation plus transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) may yield similar overall survival (OS) rates to liver resection in patients with cirrhosis and large, solitary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumors, researchers reported. Liver resection remains the standard-of-care for… Read More
liver
Patients with unresectable colorectal liver metastases survive longer if they are treated with a combination of systemic treatment and local treatment with radiofrequency ablation and with or without resection, according to the final results of the CLOCC study. The phase II, randomized trial… Read More
