Default good results with Radiofrequency tissue ablation (liver metastases tumor carcinoma pancreas ascites)


Indian J Gastroenterol. 2003 May-Jun;22(3):91-3.

Radiofrequency tissue ablation: an early Indian experience.

Department of Surgical Gastroenterology and Clinical Nutrition, Bhopal
Memorial Hospital and Research Center, Bhopal.

INTRODUCTION: Radiofrequency (RF) tissue ablation has been tried safely and
effectively in the West as percutaneous local tissue ablation therapy. We
present our experience with this technique in malignant lesions. METHODS: RF
tumor ablation was done using an RF generator (Berchtold; Germany)
generating 35-50 RF watts of power output. The RF needle was placed in the
tumor under image guidance (n = 22) or at open surgery (n = 1). Around 1500
watts/cm3 RF energy was delivered to the tumor. Over 21 months, 23 patients
underwent the procedure for 73 lesions, including metastatic liver lesions
(n = 21) and locally advanced inoperable carcinoma of pancreas (n = 2).
RESULTS: All lesions less than 3 cm in size (n = 15) and 39% of lesions 3-4
cm in size (17/44) had complete necrosis. Residual tumor was seen in 27/44
lesions (61%) 3-4 cm in size and in all 14 lesions more than 4 cm in size.
There was no mortality or major morbidity. There were two minor
complications (ascites 1, pleural effusion 1). Of 21 patients treated for
liver metastases, 10 are still alive (6-month survival 19/21 [90%] and
12-month survival 11/17 [64.7%]). Only 2 of 32 (6.2%) lesions with complete
necrosis had local recurrence. CONCLUSION: RF tumor ablation is a safe and
effective local tissue ablative method in Indian patients.

What is another term for the above, please?

Default good results with Radiofrequency tissue ablation (apnea)


Then it's not being used in Canada, UK, US, or Australia.
I only find sleep apnea, Italy, Asia, Belgium etc.
end of the road...
I want to see places that use, comparisons between other treatments, costs of
equipment, complications of, limitations of etc etc.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=radio+frequency+a
blation+%22co.uk%22

From the RACS (Australian Safety and Efficacy Register for new
interventional procedures.
http://www.surgeons.org/asernip-s/net-s/procedures1.htm#searchR

And I can tell you that I am sure it is being used in the US. You may want
to look here: http://www.cancerablation.com/faq.php

Then I suggest that you use google, PubMed, eMedicine, and OMD and start
checking it out. A good start:

Default good results with Radiofrequency tissue ablation (eye)


Good eye, you figured out what I was doing wrong.
It came to me as I woke up today, that I was copying the phrase from the report
(that included the word "tissue") into the search engine. No wonder I couldn't
find what I was looking for !
Thanks to you and thanks to Sharon, but now that Steph's back, I'm not bothering
anyway/more.

You might want to check http://www.robertsreview.com for latest interviews
(audio, video, and transcripts)with leading doc's and researchers on
new treatment protocols, drugs, research breakthroughs, and pain
management. (I think they also offer special financial help to cancer
patients...along with "top cancer treatment" hospitals/clinis.)

I check 'em once or twice a week at http://www.robertsreview.com

Hope this may be of some help to you.
