PURPOSE Radio frequency ablation (RFA) has been used as a minimally invasive alternative to nephrectomy for small renal tumors. Questions have arisen regarding the accuracy of cell viability determination on standard hematoxylin and eosin (H & E) staining. We investigated and compared the histological characteristics of RF ablated renal tissue using nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) and H & E staining. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten porcine kidneys underwent laparoscopic RFA of the upper… CONTINUE READING
