1、What is radiofrequency ablation of tumor?

The main principle of radiofrequency ablation technology is to lead the radiofrequency current produced by radiofrequency generator into the local tissues by using radiofrequency electrode (needle), and stimulate the ions in the tissue cells to carry out high-speed vibration and produce the friction heat. The heat energies can be transmitted outward periphery gradually with the increase of time. With the rise of the local temperature (up to 60~120), intracellular proteins will produce denaturation. At the same time, it can make the vascular tissues around the tumor  coagulate and form a reaction zone, so that they cannot continue to supply blood to the tumor, resulting in coagulative necrosis and exfoliation of tumor tissues, and the necrotic tissues will be absorbed or excreted by the body subsequently, so as to achieve the purpose of therapy.

 

2、What are the methods of radiofrequency ablation?

1)Percutaneous puncture under the guidance of image (main method)

a: Ablation therapy under the guidance of type-B ultrasonic

b: Ablation therapy under the guidance of magnetic resonance

c: Ablation therapy under the guidance of CT

2)Other radiofrequency ablation methods

a: Ablation therapy under the laparoscopic guidance

b: Ablation therapy by laparotomy

1、Therapy for tumor: radiofrequency ablation VS conventional surgical resection


Surgical Resection

Radiofrequency Ablation

  Big operation trauma, result in a scar on the skin after operation

   The normal tissue will be injured, causing organ dysfunction.

   Long postoperative recovery time (about a week).

   Hardly repeatable

   Adverse reactions and complications are more.

   The operation is complex, and the process is long (several hours).

   It is not suitable for patients with poor physical function.

   Small operation trauma, minimally invasive

   Strongtargeting property,  protecting the structures of the organ and the tissues at utmost.

   Short postoperative recovery time(about one day).

   Easily repeatable

   Adverse reactions and complications are less.

   The operation is simple, and the process is short (within one hour).

   It is suitable for the patients with poor physical function.

 

2、Advantages of radiofrequency ablation therapy

1)Minimally invasive, does not affect the appearance, less trauma, less pain

2)Preservation of organ functions

3)Quick recovery, and even do not need to be hospitalized, only outpatient treatment is needed

4)Definite curative effect

5)Low cost6)Safety therapy, both doctors and patients can rest assured
