OBJECTIVE To compare the transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) alone or plus radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in the treatment of single branch portal vein tumor thrombus(PVTT)in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) so as to evaluate the safety, control rate, prognostic factors and overall survival. METHODS From January 2004 to December(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical efficacy and survival rate of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) alone or plus radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in patients with intermediate or advanced stage primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS In this retrospective study, 467 cases received RFA or TACE plus RFA. Among them, 167 cases with strict clinical(More)
PURPOSE To assess the time to disease progression (TTP), long-term survival benefit and safety of patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated with computed tomography (CT)-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) with transarterial chemoembolization chemoembolization (TACE). METHODS This study was approved by the institutional review(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate technical efficacy and the impact of CT-guided pulmonary radiofrequency ablation (RFA) on survival in patients with pulmonary metastases from nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 2000 and 2009, 480 patients were pathologically or clinically confirmed pulmonary metastases(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the long-term efficacy and investigate the prognostic factors of cytokine-induced killer (CIK) combined with the sequential transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHOD A total of 95 HCC patients with the informed consents received TACE combined with RFA, 48 cases of(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the impact of age and gender on cardiac structure and left ventricular function in normal Chinese by echocardiography. METHODS Cardiac structure, valve flow velocity and cardiac function were measured by echocardiography in 15,692 healthy volunteers. Subjects were grouped by age at 5 years interval in population older than 5 years.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation (n = 20) with subaortic ventriculotomy (n = 17) in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy by echocardiography. METHODS The pre- and post-operation (1 week post procedure) gradients of left ventricular out flow (LVOTGs) were measured by echocardiography.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the prognostic factors and significance of patients with colorectal liver metastases (CLM) treated with radiofrequency ablation (RFA). METHODS A retrospective study was conducted for the clinic outcomes, follow-up data and survival status in 84 patients with CLM undergoing RFA between January 2000 and December 2008. Univariate and(More)
