OBJECTIVE Our study was designed to examine the efficacy of stepwise hook extension technique for radiofrequency ablation (RFA) therapy of hepatocellular carcinoma in a randomized controlled study. METHOD Twenty patients with hepatocellular carcinoma measuring <25 mm were divided randomly into two equal groups. RFA was applied using our new stepwise hook extension technique in patients of group 1, and the full extension method in group 2. The 10-hook electrode of LeVeen needle was deployed in… CONTINUE READING
