AIM To compare the long-term local control of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and risk of peritoneal seeding via percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) using artificial ascites with those of RFA without artificial ascites. MATERIALS AND METHODS The Institutional Review Board approved this retrospective study. From April 2005 to February 2008, 160 patients (121 men, 39 women; age range 36-79 years) with a single subcapsular HCC (mean size 2.19 cm) were treated with ultrasonography-guided… CONTINUE READING
