BACKGROUND Although previously reported in an animal model, the development of EUS-guided radiofrequency ablation (EUS-RFA) has been impeded because of a lack of a retractable needle electrode array that could safely and effectively ablate large areas. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and safety of performing EUS-RFA with a 19-gauge FNA needle fitted with an umbrella-shaped retractable needle electrode array. DESIGN AND SETTING Endoscopic experimental study in a porcine survival model… CONTINUE READING
