45. Combination of Pulsed Radiofrequency with Continuous Radiofrequency Thermocoagulation at Low Temperature Improves Efficacy and Safety in V2/V3 Primary Trigeminal Neuralgia. (Abstract)

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. Primary trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a common clinical refractory neuralgia. Severe pain is experienced during episodes, severely impacting the patient's quality of life. Long-term suffering from the disease can lead to anxiety, depression, and even suicide. The pathological processes involved in TN are complex

46. Comparative assessment of monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency surgery of inferior turbinate. (Abstract)

Comparative assessment of monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency surgery of inferior turbinate. The aim of this study was to compare early outcomes of monopolar (MP) and bipolar (BP) radiofrequency (RF) treatment of inferior turbinate hypertrophy from the perspective of both the patient and the surgeon.Prospective, randomized, single-blind study.Seventy-one patients with inferior turbinate hypertrophy resistant to medical treatment. BP RF was used in 36 patients and MP RF in 35 patients (...) , respectively. Patients received no other treatment during a 6-month follow-up. They were evaluated for symptoms such as nasal obstruction severity, nasal obstruction frequency, postnasal drip, nasal crusting, hyposmia, patient satisfaction, and preoperative pain with the use of a visual analogue scale (VAS) before surgery and then 1 and 7 days as well as 1, 3, and 6 months after surgery.No significant difference was observed regarding symptoms of patients after BP and MP inferior turbinate RF surgery

47. Long-term results of radiofrequency maze procedure for persistent atrial fibrillation with concomitant mitral surgery Full Text available with Trip Pro

Long-term results of radiofrequency maze procedure for persistent atrial fibrillation with concomitant mitral surgery The radiofrequency (RF) maze procedure can effectively restore sinus rhythm in most patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) and mitral disease. However, long-term results and predictors for late AF recurrence are still under investigation.From December 1995 to November 2011, 207 consecutive patients with persistent AF and mitral disease underwent RF maze procedure (...) and concomitant mitral surgery. The mean age was 54±12.4 year-old. Mitral surgery was performed in all patients and concomitant procedures including tricuspid surgery, aortic valve surgery, and atrial septal defect closure were carried on 164 patients.The in-hospital mortality was 3.9% (n=8) and late mortality was 8.2% (n=17). After a mean follow-up period of 101±50.9 months, 154 patients (74.4%) had long-term sinus conversion. A permanent pacer was implanted in 8 patients (3.9%). By Cox multivariate survival

48. Radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of weight regain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. (Abstract)

Radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of weight regain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery is an established modality for the treatment of morbid obesity. However, approximately one-quarter of patients experience weight regain after initially successful weight loss. Endoscopic therapy targeting the gastric remnant pouch represents a novel potential strategy to re-induce weight loss in this population. We performed a pilot trial of radiofrequency (...) ), with a significant trend for continued weight loss over the 12-month period (P = .013). Two patients had serious adverse events requiring hospitalization.RFA of the gastric remnant pouch in patients with weight regain after RYGB resulted in significant reductions in excess body weight with an acceptable safety profile. Continued weight loss was observed after each RFA treatment. Further clinical trials in well-selected populations are warranted to determine the optimal number and frequency of RFA treatments

Predictors of cognitive function in patients with hypothalamic hamartoma following stereotactic radiofrequency thermocoagulation surgery. To determine the predictors of cognitive function in patients with drug-resistant gelastic seizures (GS) related to hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) before and after stereotactic radiofrequency thermocoagulation surgery (SRT).We studied 88 patients with HH who underwent SRT between October 1997 and December 2014. Patients received neuropsychological tests (...) for an average of 3.3 years, and 75 (85.2%) of them achieved GS remission at the last hospital visit. Neuropsychological performance was significantly improved after surgery in both groups. Multivariate linear regression analysis showed that a smaller HH size (p = 0.002) and a smaller number of antiepileptic drugs (p < 0.001) were preoperatively associated with better neuropsychological performance. Multivariate linear regression analysis showed that better postoperative improvement in cognition

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

56. 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 (Abstract)

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

59. Expert consensus on image‐guided radiofrequency ablation of pulmonary tumors: 2018 edition Full Text available with Trip Pro

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
