AIM To evaluate the safety and efficacy of high-powered (80-100 W) percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) at a frequency of 2450±10 MHz for treating larger hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and to predict the risk factors of local recurrence after high-powered MWA. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was approved by the Institutional Review Board, and informed consent was waived because of the retrospective study design. Forty-five patients with a total of 60 lesions received high-power (80-100 W… CONTINUE READING
