Radiofrequency Ablation Provides Complete Necrosis Of Primary
Invasive Breast Carcinomas
[11/08/2001; Doctor's Guide]
Radiofrequency ablation produced complete coagulative necrosis
of early-stage, primary breast carcinomas in all but one of the
patients in a pilot study of the treatment.
The treatment was safe, with only one complication relating to
the radiofrequency ablation.
These initial findings have led specialists at the University
of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, United
States, and the G. Pascale National Cancer Institute, Naples,
Italy, to start a full-scale trial of radiofrequency ablation
alone (no resection) for patients with T1 and T2 breast tumours.
This will include sentinel lymph node mapping and post-ablation
