A Prominent Procedure Used to Treat Liver Cancer
CT / USG Guided RFA and Biopsy are the best techniques/procedures used in the treatment of liver cancer. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) a technique that uses an alternating current of a high-frequency produced using a radiofrequency generator, oscillating in a closed-loop circuit. The current causes the needle to heat over 60°C then used to cause intentional protein denaturation and tissue damage.
CT / USG Guided RFA and Biopsy is the procedure to extract a part of tissue or sample of cells from your body to test and diagnose in a laboratory.
A well-established antitumor treatment Radiofrequency ablation is known to be one of the lowest invasive procedures. In the treatment of Pancreatic Cancer and also Asymptomatic premalignant neoplasms, Endoscopic ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation, which stands to be a less invasive choice for surgical, is utilized.
Q. What are some common uses of the procedure?
A. Used to treat many types of liver cancer, most commonly hepatocellular carcinoma, a prominent liver cancer (meaning it begins in the liver), colon cancer that develops from the colon to the liver.
Also, be used for multiple other types of cancer and masses within the liver, Ablation is most effective in the treatment of tumors with a diameter lower than one and a half inches. Also used in addition to chemotherapy & radiation therapy and as an alternative to surgical treatment.
Q. Who is Ablation most viable too?
A. Ablation is an effective treatment given:
- The patient’s tumor is difficult to reach making surgery problematic.
- Other medical conditions making the surgery risky.
- Insufficient liver tissue for the organ to function properly after the surgery
- Liver tumors that do not respond when the patient is undergoing chemotherapy or that have recurred after being removed surgically.
