In recent years, thermal tumor ablation techniques such as percutaneous radiofrequency (RF) ablation and cryoablation have assumed an important role in the management of renal tumors, particularly in patients who may be suboptimal candidates for more invasive surgical techniques. Postablation computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging play(More)
OBJECTIVE Percutaneous thermal ablation is an emerging technique in the management of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), with greatest efficacy in tumors < or = 3 cm. The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the role and utility of pretreatment CT-guided biopsy in patients referred for percutaneous thermal ablation of renal tumors. CONCLUSION Less(More)
Endovascular techniques are gaining wider acceptance in the treatment of intracranial lesions. Tortuous vasculature is a common reason for failure to treat an intracranial lesion, especially when balloon catheters or stents are used. In these cases, the guiding catheter often buckles into the aorta during an attempt to place the balloon or stent. In our(More)
In the era of nephron-sparing surgery for small renal tumors, thermal ablation is gaining popularity. Both cryoablation and radiofrequency ablation have well-demonstrated short-term oncologic efficacy and safety. This article shares the current literature and the radiofrequency ablation technique at a high-volume institution. Cases are presented that(More)
