OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article was to compare periprocedural analgesic requirements and hospital length of stay for treatment of patients with painful metastatic tumors involving bone using either percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or cryoablation. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review was conducted of patients who underwent either imaging-guided cryoablation or imaging-guided RFA for painful metastatic tumors involving bone. The total analgesic usage for 24 hours after… CONTINUE READING
