Microwave ablation with cooled-tip electrode for liver cancer: an analysis of 160 cases.

BACKGROUND/AIMS A novel microwave electrode with a cooled tip (FORSEA MTC-3 type, China) was devised to better enable microwave ablation of liver cancers. The efficacy of this technology was evaluated. METHODOLOGY The records of 160 patients (97 with hepatoma/hepatocellular carcinoma, 63 with metastatic cancer to the liver) who had undergone microwave… CONTINUE READING
