From April 2013 to July 2014, 25 consecutive men participated in a longitudinal outcomes study following in-bore magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided focal laser ablation (FLA) of prostate cancer (...
Prostate ablation treatments have long been utilized although a recent shift away from whole gland ablation has occurred in an effort to decrease side-effects. Interest in this form of focal treatment...
HIFU has been shown to be a more suitable alternative for the treatment of primary solid tumors and metastatic diseases than other focal heat ablation techniques due to its noninvasive and extracorpor...
Although localised prostate cancer is multifocal in most instances, the index lesion might be responsible for disease progression.
Under magnetic resonance (MR) guidance, high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is capable of precise and accurate delivery of thermal dose to tissues. Given the excellent soft tissue imaging capabil...
RATIONALE: High-intensity focused ultrasound focal ablation uses high-energy sound waves to kill tumor cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of high-intensity f...
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of focal (targeted) Radio-Frequency Ablation (RFA) in men with low or intermediate-risk, clinically localized prostate...
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of MRI guided focal prostate cancer laser ablation in males, ages 45-80 with biopsy confirmed early clinical stag...
RATIONALE: Highly focused ultrasound energy may be able to kill tumor cells by heating the tumor without affecting the surrounding tissue. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the sid...
The end point of catheter ablation at complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAE) was not established yet. Furthermore, incomplete CFAE ablation may have a potential to develop atrial ...
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
Removal of tissue by vaporization, abrasion, or destruction. Methods used include heating tissue by hot liquids or microwave thermal heating, freezing (CRYOABLATION), chemical ablation, and photoablation with LASERS.
A method of tissue ablation and bleeding control that uses argon plasma (ionized argon gas) to deliver a current of thermocoagulating energy to the area of tissue to be coagulated.
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
