Treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma using internally cooled electrodes. A prospective comparison of modified automated vs. manual pulsed radiofrequency algorithms.


OBJECTIVES To compare the effectiveness of modified automated and manual pulsed radiofrequency (RF) algorithms using internally cooled electrodes for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS Seventy-seven treatment-naive cirrhotic patients with 102 HCC (< or =4 cm) underwent 109 sessions of ultrasound-guided percutaneous RF ablation using a 17-gauge, 20-cm… (More)
