Background: Loin pain haematuria syndrome (LPHS) and autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) are the most important non-urological conditions to cause chronic severe kidney-related pain. Multidisciplinary programmes and surgical methods have shown inconsistent results with respect to pain reduction. Percutaneous catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) could be a less invasive treatment option for these patients. Methods: Our aim was to explore the change in perceived pain and use of analgesic medication from baseline to 3, 6 and 12 months after RDN...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, effectiveness, and safety of ultrasound-guided percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for the treatment of liver metastasis from ovarian cancer (OC). METHODS: A retrospective review was performed on 11 patients (mean age, 53.0 ± 10.1 years) with 22 liver metastases (mean diameter, 2.0 ± 0.8 cm) from OC undergone RFA. Radiofrequency ablation was carried out with Starburst XL electrodes (RITA Medical System, Mountain View, CA) or Cool-tip electrodes (Cool-tip Systems; Valleylab, Boulder, CO)...

Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia in adults affecting almost 6 million adults in the United States. The 2 most common comorbidities associated with atrial fibrillation are heart failure and thromboembolic events. Heart failure symptoms may be treated with rate control, antiarrhythmic medications or by catheter ablation. Unfortunately, despite optimal medical management, thromboembolic events still occur. Recently, there has been a great deal of interest and innovation in finding an alternative to chronic anticoagulation...

PURPOSE: To compare the prognosis of subcapsular and nonsubcapsular hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after ultrasonography (US)-guided percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA). MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2012 to December 2015, 463 enrollment patients (382 men, 81 women; age range, 24-95 years) with a single HCC underwent US-guided percutaneous MWA. The patients were divided into two groups according to tumor location: subcapsular (n=224) and nonsubcapsular (n=239)...

Case report presents the successful treatment of solitary liver metastasis in a patient with resected colon cancer. A 39-year-old male underwent left hemicolectomy with colostomy formation followed by chemotherapy for a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma of the colon. Two years later, a liver metastatic lesion was detected. Patient received chemotherapy; the mass remained stable in size, measuring up to 3 cm in diameter. Low-invasive percutaneous curative treatment by Radiofrequency ablation was conducted using hydrodissection by dielectric fluid intraperitoneal introduction for hydrodissection...

OBJECTIVES: To report adverse event rates after rotational atherectomy (RA) with contemporary drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation and compare RA to cutting balloon (CB) angioplasty and balloon-only angioplasty (BA) in the all-comers ADAPT-DES trial. BACKGROUND: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of calcified lesions is increasingly common and is associated with a high risk of adverse events. RA can ablate calcified plaque and facilitate stent delivery; however, in conjunction with first-generation DES, RA was not superior to BA alone in regard to adverse events...

"Spiked helmet" is a type of ST elevation, which is generally observed in critically ill patients and associated with very poor prognosis. Here we present a case of previously undiagnosed long QT syndrome admitted with polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PMVT) unresponsive to pharmacological treatment and developed "spiked helmet" sign after left percutaneous stellate ganglion ablation.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze retrospectively the safety and effectiveness of percutaneous microwave ablation of solid renal tumors, and also review different approach techniques. METHODS: It is a retrospective study approved by the ethics committee of both hospitals. 14 tumors with a mean size of 37 mm (12-50 mm) were treated in a single session, under general anesthesia and with CT guidance, in 14 patients (9 men) with a mean age of 66 years, using the ablation system AMICA by different approaches (trans pulmonary, trans peritoneal and retroperitoneal)...

BACKGROUND: Surgical resection of limited colorectal liver disease improves long-term survival and can be curative in a subset of selected cases. Image-guided percutaneous ablation therapies have emerged as safe and effective alternative options for selected patients with unresectable colorectal liver metastases (CLM) that can be ablated with margins. Ablation causes focal destruction of tissue and has increasingly been shown to provide durable eradication of tumors. METHODS: A selective review of literature was conducted in PubMed, focusing on recent studies reporting on the safety, efficacy, and long-term outcomes of percutaneous ablation modalities in the treatment of CLM...

The benign breast lesions (BBLs) share a high incidence for women and therapy methods with minimal invasion and better cosmetic outcome are thirsted for. In this study, 122 patients with 198 biopsy-proved BBLs were enrolled. Ultrasound (US)-guided microwave ablation (MWA) was performed with local anesthesia from November, 2013 to April, 2016. The mean longest tumor size assessed was 1.6±0.7 cm (ranging 0.7-4.9 cm). MWA was successfully performed in all cases including 85 lesions adjacent to the skin, pectoralis and areola...

INTRODUCTION: This observational study was designed to analyze the safety and feasibility of percutaneous skin closure using a purse-string suture and compare it with the use of a compression bandage after pulmonary vein isolation. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 407 patients undergoing pulmonary vein isolation (217 with radiofrequency and 190 with cryoballoon ablation) were treated with either purse-string sutures or compression bandages. The purse-string suture was applied after ablation before withdrawal of the sheaths...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous transcatheter radiofrequency ablation of atrial fibrillation with remote controlled magnetic navigation (RMN) has been shown to reduce radiation exposure to patients and physicians compared with conventional manual (MAN) ablation techniques. METHODS: Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation was performed utilizing RMN in 214 consecutive patients and MAN ablation techniques in 229 patients. We compared the fluoroscopy and procedural times between RMN and MAN catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in humans and is known to be associated with an increased risk of stroke, dementia, heart failure and mortality. Non-pharmacological therapy with ablation using either surgical or percutaneous techniques is recommended in drug refractory AF. Early attempts to devise procedures to ablate AF and restore sinus rhythm culminated with the Cox-Maze procedure, the first truly successful procedure. Since then, ablation surgery has been conducted predominately as a concomitant procedure...

Skeletal-related events in patients with metastatic bone disease include intractable severe pain, pathologic fracture, spinal cord and nerve compression, hypercalcemia and bone marrow aplasia. In patients with breast cancer, the skeleton is the most frequent site for metastases. Treatment options for metastatic bone disease in these patients include bisphosphonates, chemotherapeutic agents, opioids, hormonal therapy, minimally invasive/interventional and surgical techniques. Interventional oncology techniques for breast cancer patients with bone metastases include diagnostic (biopsy) and therapeutic (palliative and curative) approaches...

Introduction Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a non-thermal minimally invasive technique to treat small renal masses (SRM). Prior work has demonstrated greater narcotic requirements after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for tumors closer to body-wall musculature. We hypothesized that pain after IRE is not dependent on tumor location due to the athermal mechanistic action. Methods Retrospective review of 50 consecutive percutaneous IRE and RFA cases was performed from 2013 to 2014. Eight patients were excluded from analysis due to incomplete anesthesia record and/or multiple ablations per session leaving 21 patients in each group...
