86. Efficacy and safety of endobiliary radiofrequency ablation for the eradication of residual neoplasia after endoscopic papillectomy : a multicenter prospective study. (PubMed)

Efficacy and safety of endobiliary radiofrequency ablation for the eradication of residual neoplasia after endoscopic papillectomy : a multicenter prospective study. Endobiliary dysplasia may persist after endoscopic papillectomy. Intraductal radiofrequency ablation (ID-RFA) is a potential alternative to complementary surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ID-RFA for the treatment of adenomatous intraductal residue after endoscopic papillectomy.A prospective (...) open-label multicenter study included patients with histologically proven endobiliary adenoma remnant (ductal extent <20 mm) after endoscopic papillectomy for ampullary tumor. RFA (effect 8, power 10 W, 30 seconds) was performed during ERCP. Biliary ± pancreatic stent was placed at the end of the procedure. Endpoints were (1) the rate of residual neoplasia (ie, low-grade dysplasia [LGD], high-grade dysplasia [HGD], or invasive carcinoma) at 6 and 12 months, (2) rate of surgery, and (3) adverse

88. Radiofrequency ablation for treatment of locally recurrent thyroid cancer presenting as a metastatic lymph node with dense macrocalcification: A case report and literature review. (PubMed)

Radiofrequency ablation for treatment of locally recurrent thyroid cancer presenting as a metastatic lymph node with dense macrocalcification: A case report and literature review. Long-term recurrence rate of differentiated thyroid carcinoma has been reported to be as high as 30%. Repeat surgery may be challenging due to normal tissue plane distortion secondary to postoperative fibrosis, especially for small-sized recurrences. Recently, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has been suggested (...) to be a safe and effective alternative for high-risk patients or those who refuse surgery. Nonetheless, the efficacy of RFA remains questionable for densely calcified lymph nodes, which would have an increased likelihood of leaving residues after RFA.We present a case of a successful combined treatment of a metastatic lymph node with dense macrocalcification with the use of a single RFA session and radioactive iodine (RAI) ablation in a patient with a previous history of total thyroidectomy and neck node

Human Dorsal Root Ganglion Pulsed Radiofrequency treatment modulates Cerebrospinal Fluid lymphocytes and neuroinflammatory markers in chronic radicular pain. Radicular pain is a common cause of disability. Traditionally treatment has been either epidural steroid injection providing short-term relief or surgery with associated complications. Pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) applied to the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) is a minimally invasive day-care treatment, which is gaining significant clinical

90. Supraglottoplasty in neonates and infants: A radiofrequency ablation approach. (PubMed)

Supraglottoplasty in neonates and infants: A radiofrequency ablation approach. Supraglottoplasty is the mainstay of surgical treatment for laryngomalacia. A novel supraglottoplasty surgical technique is needed to achieve better efficacy. The purpose of this study was to introduce modified microscopic radiofrequency ablation supraglottoplasty (MMRAS) for the treatment of congenital laryngomalacia and to evaluate the outcome and effectiveness of this novel approach.Seventeen children with severe (...) laryngomalacia who underwent MMRAS were studied retrospectively. Supraglottoplasty of type III laryngomalacia was different from classical method. All the patients were kept intubated for 5 days after surgery to achieve a better epiglottal position and to avoid reconglutination of aryepiglottic folds. The patients' demographic information, symptoms, comorbidities, type of laryngomalacia, synchronous airway lesions and final outcomes were examined.The median age at the time of surgery was 3.36 months (3

91. A comparison of symptoms and quality of life before and after nasal septoplasty and radiofrequency therapy of the inferior turbinate. (PubMed)

A comparison of symptoms and quality of life before and after nasal septoplasty and radiofrequency therapy of the inferior turbinate. The primary goal of this study is to compare pre- and postoperative symptoms and health related quality of life (HQOL) in 57 patients who underwent septoplasty (group-1), 56 patients who underwent septoplasty combined with radiofrequency therapy of inferior turbinates (RFIT) (group-2) and 58 patients who underwent RFIT alone (group-3). The secondary goal (...) is to investigate if the change in symptoms and HQOL differed between these three patient groups after surgery.All patients reported symptoms on a visual analogue scale (VAS) and HQOL on Sino-Nasal-Outcome-Test-20 (SNOT-20) and Short-Form-Health-Survey-36 (SF-36) before and 6 months after surgery. The pre- and postoperative scores and improvement were compared within and between the three patient groups.Preoperatively the three patient groups had a fairly similar symptom burden and HQOL, except for group-1

92. Radiofrequency Ablation Effectively Treated Focal Recurrence of Mesothelioma. (PubMed)

Radiofrequency Ablation Effectively Treated Focal Recurrence of Mesothelioma. A 55-year-old man with malignant pleural mesothelioma underwent multimodality treatment comprising induction chemotherapy followed by extrapleural pneumonectomy and radiation therapy. After 2.5 years, focal recurrence occurred, with computed tomography revealing a tumor in the left cardiophrenic angle. Surgery was considered a problem for the patient because of the previous extrapleural pneumonectomy and difficult (...) tumor location. Radiofrequency ablation was therefore performed; the course was uneventful, and there was no recurrence. Radiofrequency ablation should be considered an option to treat recurrence of malignant pleural mesothelioma.Copyright © 2018 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. Published by Elsevier Inc.

94. Outcomes of Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy for Large Benign Thyroid Nodules: A Mayo Clinic Case Series. (PubMed)

Outcomes of Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy for Large Benign Thyroid Nodules: A Mayo Clinic Case Series. To assess the effectiveness, tolerability, and complications of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in patients with benign large thyroid nodules (TNs).This is a retrospective review of 14 patients with predominantly solid TNs treated with RFA at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, from December 1, 2013, through October 30, 2016. All the patients declined surgery or were poor surgical candidates (...) . The TNs were benign on fine-needle aspiration, enlarging or causing compressive symptoms, and 3 cm or larger in largest diameter. We evaluated TN volume, compressive symptoms, cosmetic concerns, and thyroid function.Median TN volume reduction induced by RFA was 44.6% (interquartile range [IQR], 42.1%-59.3%), from 24.2 mL (IQR, 17.7-42.5 mL) to 14.4 mL (IQR, 7.1-19.2 mL) (P<.001). Median follow-up was 8.6 months (IQR, 3.9-13.9 months). Maximum results were achieved by 6 months. Radiofrequency ablation

98. Is radiofrequency ablation of varicose veins a valuable option? A systematic review of the literature with a cost analysis (PubMed)

Is radiofrequency ablation of varicose veins a valuable option? A systematic review of the literature with a cost analysis Since the 1990s, new techniques for the treatment of varicose veins have emerged, including radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and laser treatment. We performed a study to compare the safety, efficacy and outcomes of RFA compared to those of open surgery and laser ablation for the treatment of varicose veins. We also carried out a cost analysis of RFA compared to open surgery (...) ). Radiofrequency ablation can be performed on an outpatient basis. We calculated that RFA would be about $110-$220 more expensive per patient than open surgery.Radiofrequency ablation is a valuable alternative to open surgery and would free up operating room time in a context of low accessibility.
