Radiofrequency Ablation in Treating Patients With Liver Cancer and Cirrhosis

RATIONALE: Radiofrequency ablation uses a high-frequency, electric current to kill tumor cells. CT-, MRI-, or ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation may be an effective treatment for li...

Radiofrequency Ablation in Treating Patients With Unresectable Primary or Metastatic Liver Cancer

RATIONALE: Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure that heats tumors to several degrees above body temperature and may kill tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness ...

Radiofrequency Ablation Followed By Hepatic Artery Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Colorectal Cancer That Has Spread to the Liver

RATIONALE: Radiofrequency ablation may be able to shrink or destroy cancer cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or di...

Radiofrequency Ablation Combined With S-1 for Pancreatic Cancer With Liver Metastasis

This study aims to explore the efficacy and safety of radiofrequency ablation combined with S-1 in pancreatic cancer patients with liver metastasis, as well as the correlation of serum mic...

Treatment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma With Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Associated With Postoperative TACE

A prospective randomized study was conducted to elucidate whether the outcome of hepatocellular carcinoma could be improved by radiofrequency ablation associated with postoperative transhe...

Massive hematemesis after radiofrequency ablation of metastatic liver tumor with successful hemostasis achieved through transarterial embolization.

Hemorrhagic complications are the most common major complications that occur after radiofrequency ablation, but hematemesis as a complication after radiofrequency ablation for hepatic tumor has not be...

A Comparison of the Initial Cost Associated With Resection Versus Laparoscopic Radiofrequency Ablation of Small Solitary Colorectal Liver Metastasis.

The aim of this report was to perform a cost-comparison between liver resection (LR) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA).

Perforation of the esophagus due to thermal injury after laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation for hepatocellular carcinoma: a case for caution.

Several reported complications associated with radiofrequency ablation for liver tumors are due to thermal damage of neighboring organs. We herein report a first case of esophageal perforation due to ...

Buried Barrett's Esophagus with High-Grade Dysplasia after Radiofrequency Ablation.

Radiofrequency ablation therapy is an effective endoscopic option for the eradication of Barrett's esophagus that appears to reduce the risk of esophageal cancer. A concern associated with this techni...

Efficacy of Endobiliary Radiofrequency Ablation using a Novel Endoluminal Radiofrequency Ablation Catheter in a Swine Model.

Endobiliary radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a new endoscopic ablative technique. However, the ideal power setting for RFA has not yet been clarified. Therefore, we intended to evaluate the effects of...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.

Hindrance of the passage of luminal contents in the DUODENUM. Duodenal obstruction can be partial or complete, and caused by intrinsic or extrinsic factors. Simple obstruction is associated with diminished or stopped flow of luminal contents. Strangulating obstruction is associated with impaired blood flow to the duodenum in addition to obstructed flow of luminal contents.

A glycoprotein that is secreted into the luminal surface of the epithelia in the gastrointestinal tract. It is found in the feces and pancreaticobiliary secretions and is used to monitor the response to colon cancer treatment.

Tumors or cancer of the LIVER.

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.
