EUS-guided RFA for Solid Abdominal Neoplasms

RFA causes tissue destruction through the application of a high frequency alternating current, generating local temperatures above 60C and leading to coagulative necrosis. The technique has been widely used in many solid organ tumours and has been shown to result in 5-year survival rates comparable to surgery. The technique is ...
