Abstract

Local treatment of breast cancer metastases is indicated in certain circumstances. The efficacy of radio frequency (RF) ablation in breast liver metastases is investigated. Twenty-four patients with 64 intrahepatic metastases ranging from 1-6.6 cm (mean 2.9) underwent ultrasonic-guided RF-ablation using 17-gauge internally-cooled electrodes. Complete necrosis is obtained in 59/64 lesions (92.1%). One of these 59 lesions (1.6%) complications occurred.
