Data support the use of percutaneous cryoablation and radiofrequency ablation for small renal tumors.

RFA Successfully Treats Small Benign Renal Tumors

By

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) can effectively treat small benign tumors in a single session, and long-term outcomes of RFA for renal tumors depend on tumor size, according to the findings of two studies.

Radiofrequency Ablation, Partial Nephrectomy for RCC Offer Similar Long-Term Outcomes

By

In appropriately selected patients, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an effective minimally invasive treatment for cT1a renal cell carcinoma (RCC) that offers long-term oncologic outcomes comparable to nephron-sparing surgery, data show.

Wider Use of Radiofrequency Ablation Possible

By

Radiofrequency ablation of small renal tumors in otherwise healthy patients preserves renal function.

Post-RFA 'Halo Sign' Characterized

By

WASHINGTON, D.C.—A "halo sign" is a common delayed finding following radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of kidney tumors, according to researchers at the University of Toronto.

RFA Clears Small Renal Cell Tumors

By

CT-guided percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is safe and effective for treating small biopsy-proven renal tumors, according to researchers.
