PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of percutaneous high-energy microwave ablation (MWA) for the treatment for pulmonary tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review was undertaken of 44 patients (21 men, 23 women; median age, 66 y; range, 17-89 y) who underwent 62 sessions of high-energy MWA for 87 pulmonary tumors at a single tertiary referral center between June 2012 and June 2014. Primary tumor origin was sarcoma (n = 23), colorectal (n = 16), lung (n = 2), esophageal (n… CONTINUE READING
