Hepatic microwave ablation: a review of the histological changes following thermal damage.

Abstract

Microwave (MW) ablation therapy is a local treatment by which tumours are destroyed by coagulation from the passage of MWs into cells. The aim of this review is to examine histological results obtained from preclinical and clinical studies. A literature search was undertaken for all studies focusing on MW therapy and in which lesions were excised for a… (More)
