Radiofrequency ablation: effect of tumor- and organ-specific pharmacologic modulation of arterial and portal venous blood flow on coagulation diameter in an N1-S1 tumor model.


PURPOSE To investigate inherent differences in vasculature of tumors versus normal parenchyma and efficacy of radiofrequency (RF) ablation with glucagon, adenosine, and a combination of the two compared with normal saline solution (NS) controls in an N1-S1 tumor model implanted in Sprague-Dawley rat livers. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 17 tumors were… (More)
