Percutaneous biopsy in the lung plays a critical role in obtaining pathologic proof of malignancy, guiding staging and planning treatment, and their related efficacy and complications are reviewed.
Ablation of pulmonary malignancy: current status.
Radiofrequency ablation of primary and metastatic lung cancers.
Technical aspects of this therapy as well as areas of further research are discussed, which suggest that radiofrequency ablation can play a major role in treatment of both early-stage primary lung cancer and metastatic lesions.
Epidemiology and staging of renal cell carcinoma.
This article describes this evolution by discussing contemporary RCC incidence and mortality data, the risk factors for development of RCC, the histologic features, and anatomic and integrated staging systems that guide treatment.
Neoadjuvant durvalumab with or without stereotactic body radiotherapy in patients with early-stage non-small-cell lung cancer: a single-centre, randomised phase 2 trial.
Role of embolization in the treatment of renal masses.
Renal arterial embolization performed for the treatment of renal masses has been proven to be a safe and effective technique, with several decades of experience, and its potential benefits warrant the need for prospective studies for further validation.
Characterization of in vivo ablation zones following percutaneous microwave ablation of the liver with two commercially available devices: are manufacturer published reference values useful?
Bone biopsy protocol for advanced prostate cancer in the era of precision medicine
Patients with advanced prostate cancer are undergoing metastatic biopsies to search for actionable targets and/or to identify emerging resistance mechanisms, and obtaining sufficient tissue for clinical and genomic studies is challenging.
Bilateral gluteal compartment syndrome after elective unilateral hypogastric artery ligation and revascularization of the contralateral hypogastric artery during open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
Radiofrequency ablation: treatment of primary lung cancer.
Current advances in both surgical techniques as well as diagnostic imaging have spawned a resurgence in interest of sublobar resection and other local therapies instead of lobectomy in patients who are candidates for anatomic lobectomy.
