RF therapy

Preya Ananthakrishnan, Sheldon Marc Feldman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Since RFA is a localized procedure, it does not produce any systemic side effects. It can be performed under imaging guidance in percutaneous, laparoscopic, or open surgical procedure settings. The treatment can be repeated as often as needed. While most studies related to RFA and breast cancer involve ablation followed by surgical resection, some studies have investigated the safety of ablation only in patients who are poor surgical candidates since RFA can be done under local anesthesia.
