6. Iterative treatment with surgery and radiofrequency ablation of uveal melanoma liver metastasis: Retrospective analysis of a series of very long-term survivors. (PubMed)

Iterative treatment with surgery and radiofrequency ablation of uveal melanoma liver metastasis: Retrospective analysis of a series of very long-term survivors. After treatment of primary ocular uveal melanoma (UM), up to 50% of patients will develop metastases, mostly in the liver. Systemic treatments do not provide any overall survival benefit for these patients and surgery remains the most effective therapy for selected patients. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) alone or in combination (...) with surgery is frequently used to spare hepatic parenchyma. When patients relapse after treatment of their first metastases, and when the liver recurrence is limited, new local liver treatment is questionable.A total of 14 patients with liver metastases from uveal melanoma (LMUM) were retrospectively evaluated. All patients had a complete first liver resection and a second treatment with RFA. Overall survival, recurrence-free interval after the first and the second treatment was evaluated.Treatment

11. Novel treatment strategy with radiofrequency ablation and surgery for pregnant patients with hepatocellular carcinoma: a case report (PubMed)

Novel treatment strategy with radiofrequency ablation and surgery for pregnant patients with hepatocellular carcinoma: a case report Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) during pregnancy is rare, with a poor prognosis. Recently, however, increasing resection rates have improved survival rate. Currently, various surgeries are safely performed after the second trimester and termination of pregnancy is not always necessary. However, surgery is sometimes limited by gestational age or the patient's (...) will. When patients with HCC refuse surgery during pregnancy, we face specific problems with respect to curability and fetal life. Meanwhile, previous studies have revealed radiofrequency ablation (RFA) as a possible alternative to surgery for the treatment of early HCC and shown its favorable local control rate for advanced HCC. However, no case of HCC treated with RFA during pregnancy has yet been reported.Here, we present the case of a 33-year-old woman, who was a hepatitis B virus carrier
