Retroperitoneal schwannomas (RSs) are particularly rare tumors, and resection is the first choice for symptomatic patients. However, some RSs with anatomical complexities pose great challenges for surgeons attempting radical resection without sacrificing the nearby critical structures, and subtotal resection leads to local recurrence, especially in refractory malignant RSs. The authors have successfully applied percutaneous CT-guided radiofrequency ablation in 2 cases of RSs, with favorable… CONTINUE READING
