Radiofrequency/Microwave Ablation

Thermal Ablation Therapies

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or microwave ablation (MWA) are procedures used to treat a variety of inoperable tumors in a minimally invasive fashion. RFA/MWA use energy delivered through a metal probe inserted into a tumor under radiographic guidance. Delivered energy causes atoms in the cells to vibrate and create friction. This generates heat leading to death of tumor cells. The heat generated in tissues treated with RFA/MWA energy causes permanent damage and destruction of tumor cells.

RFA/MWA is safe, effective treatment option approved by the FDA for liver, lung, bone and soft tissue. Ablation studies have shown significant benefit for patients with tumors in various locations including liver (primary and secondary) breast (combined with surgery to treat early stage cancers), kidney, lung (predominantly stage I and stage II disease), bone, adrenal and soft tissue. Most importantly, RFA/MWA can be an effective treatment for patients whose cancers cannot be treated surgically. Ablation for small tumors is considered as effective as resection.

Do you know the signs & symptoms?

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot forms in one of the deep veins of your body, usually in your legs, but sometimes in your arm.

    (or arm)
  • Leg pain or tenderness often described as a cramp or
    Charley horse
  • Reddish or bluish skin discoloration
  • Leg (or arm) warm to touch

Pulmonary Embolism

Clots can break off from a DVT and travel to the lung, causing a pulmonary embolism (PE), which can be fatal.

  • Sudden shortness of breath
  • Chest pain-sharp, stabbing; may get worse with deep breath
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Unexplained cough, sometimes with bloody mucus
