RFA and Complete Necrosis of Invasive Bca

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 irradiation.
