Radiofrequency (RF) ablation is an alternative to percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI) for single nonsurgical hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and is currently used as adjuvant therapy before liver transplantation. This phase II study assesses the treatment-related complications and response rate of RF for the treatment of single HCC < or = 5 cm. Percutaneous RF was performed under conscious sedation and ultrasound (US) guidance with an electrical generator connected to a single cooled-tip… CONTINUE READING
