Stage III pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has a poor prognosis, with the results of chemoradiation being disappointing. Radiofrequency is an ablation technique employed in many unresectable solid tumours, but its application to pancreatic cancer is limited. We report our experience of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) with cytoreductive intent in stage III PDAC. One hundred consecutive patients affected by stage III PDAC received RFA combined with chemoradiotherapy. Follow-up was planned on… CONTINUE READING
