Radiofrequency ablation is one of the more established forms of local treatment in patients with unresectable tumours, including colorectal hepatic metastases. Complications associated with this method of intervention include thermal and mechanical injuries, including vascular insults resulting in haemorrhage or pseudoaneurysm formation. This is the first case demonstrating the detection of post-ablation acute pseudoaneurysm formation identified on the table using contrast-enhanced ultrasound… CONTINUE READING
