22. Sinus Rhythm Restoration after Radiofrequency Ablation Improves Survival in Patients Undergoing Mitral Valve Surgery : A Eight Year Single Center Study (Full text)

Sinus Rhythm Restoration after Radiofrequency Ablation Improves Survival in Patients Undergoing Mitral Valve Surgery : A Eight Year Single Center Study The usefulness of radiofrequency (RF) ablation in restoring sinus rhythm in patients with permanent atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing surgery for mitral valve has been demonstrated. But whether sinus rhythm recovery affects long-term survival is less clear.This study included 301 consecutive patients (126 men and 175 women, age 69±6 years (...) ) undergoing radiofrequency ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation along with mitral valve surgery. Radiofrequency ablation was performed using unipolar probe in 55.3%, bipolar probe in the remaining 44.7% of cases.Four patients died during hospitalization. At follow-up, sinus rhythm was present in 76% of the surviving patients. 71 patients never recovered sinus rhythm after hospital discharge. Mortality and recurrent hospitalization were significantly lower in patients with sinus rhythm at the end

23. Radiofrequency versus ultrasonic energy in laparoscopic colorectal surgery: a metaanalysis of operative time and blood loss.

Radiofrequency versus ultrasonic energy in laparoscopic colorectal surgery: a metaanalysis of operative time and blood loss. Various energy sources are available for tissue dissection and vessel sealing in laparoscopic colorectal surgery. The electrothermal bipolar vessel sealing system (EBVS) and ultrasonic energy (UE) devices are widely used to provide hemostatic dissection in laparoscopic procedures. Nevertheless, available evidenced-based data comparing their operative results still (...) are scarce. This study conducted a metaanalysis of controlled clinical trials comparing EBVS and UE in terms of operative time and intraoperative blood losses in laparoscopic colorectal surgery.The MEDLINE and Embase databases were searched using medical subject headings and free text words. All randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and controlled clinical trials using EBVS and UE in laparoscopic colorectal surgery were considered for inclusion in the study.

laser ablation (EVLA), radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) versus conventional surgery in the treatment of SSV varices.The Cochrane Vascular Information Specialist searched the Specialised Register (last searched 17 March 2016) and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL; 2016, Issue 2). We searched clinical trials databases for details of ongoing or unpublished studies.We considered all randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing EVLA (...) Endovenous ablation therapy (laser or radiofrequency) or foam sclerotherapy versus conventional surgical repair for short saphenous varicose veins. Short (or small) saphenous vein (SSV) varices occur as a result of an incompetent sapheno-popliteal junction, where the SSV joins the popliteal vein, resulting in reflux in the SSV; they account for about 15% of varicose veins. Untreated varicose veins may sometimes lead to ulceration of the leg, which is difficult to manage. Traditionally

January 2014 and December 2015 and randomly assigned to 2 groups differentiated by therapeutic method: CRF (CRF group, n = 40) and PRF + CRF (PCRF group, n = 40). Radiofrequency therapy was performed under the guidance of CT. Follow-up measures assessed preoperative conditions, pain remission, complications and side effects, recovery time, and recurrence rate over the 2 years following the surgery.The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) scores decreased in both groups after surgery. After one month (...) Combination of Pulsed Radiofrequency with Continuous Radiofrequency Thermocoagulation at Low Temperature Improves Efficacy and Safety in V2/V3 Primary Trigeminal Neuralgia.

26. Radiofrequency ablation of genicular nerves prior to total knee replacement has no effect on postoperative pain outcomes: a prospective randomized sham-controlled trial with 6-month follow-up

Radiofrequency ablation of genicular nerves prior to total knee replacement has no effect on postoperative pain outcomes: a prospective randomized sham-controlled trial with 6-month follow-up Refractory chronic knee pain from osteoarthritis (OA) is commonly treated with total knee arthroplasty (TKA). TKA can be associated with severe postoperative pain and persistent postsurgical knee pain. Poorly controlled postoperative pain can negatively effect functional outcomes following TKA (...) , and effective opioid-sparing analgesia is key to the ideal recovery. Genicular nerve radiofrequency ablation (GN-RFA) has been shown in several trials to be clinically effective in patients with severe refractory knee pain from OA. We aimed to assess if preoperative GN-RFA would improve postoperative pain outcomes following TKA.This was a sham-control prospective clinical trial in which blinded participants were randomized to image-guided GN-RFA or a simulated sham procedure 2-6 weeks prior to elective TKA

29. Radiofrequency turbinate volume reduction vs. radiofrequency-assisted turbinectomy for nasal obstruction caused by inferior turbinate hypertrophy. (PubMed)

Radiofrequency turbinate volume reduction vs. radiofrequency-assisted turbinectomy for nasal obstruction caused by inferior turbinate hypertrophy. Radiofrequency procedures are a well-accepted treatment for nasal obstruction. We conducted a randomized, noncontrolled study to compare the effectiveness of submucosal bipolar radiofrequency turbinate volume reduction (RFTVR) and bipolar radiofrequency-assisted turbinectomy (RFaT) in patients presenting with nasal obstruction caused by inferior (...) . However, we noted that the incidence of adverse effects and postoperative morbidity was higher in the RFaT group. Therefore, we conclude that when surgery is indicated, RFTVR is the preferred treatment for nasal obstruction secondary to inferior turbinate hypertrophy. RFaT is equally effective, but it is associated with a slightly higher incidence of adverse effects.

39. Expert consensus on image‐guided radiofrequency ablation of pulmonary tumors: 2018 edition (Full text)

Expert consensus on image‐guided radiofrequency ablation of pulmonary tumors: 2018 edition Lung cancer ranks first in incidence and mortality in China. Surgery is the primary method to cure cancer, but only 20-30% of patients are eligible for curative resection. In recent years, in addition to surgery, other local therapies have been developed for patients with numerous localized primary and metastatic pulmonary tumors, including stereotactic body radiation therapy and thermal ablative (...) therapies through percutaneously inserted applicators. Percutaneous thermal ablation of pulmonary tumors is minimally invasive, conformal, repeatable, feasible, cheap, has a shorter recovery time, and offers reduced morbidity and mortality. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), the most commonly used thermal ablation technique, has a reported 80-90% rate of complete ablation, with the best results obtained in tumors < 3 cm in diameter. Because the clinical efficacy of RFA of pulmonary tumors has not yet been
