The article presents information on the ablation technique of percutaneous cooled-tip microwave under the ultrasound guidance for the treatment of primary liver cancer with reference to the treatment of naive-lesions of patients in China. Electromagnetic energy is used by the ablation for rotating the adjacent polar water molecules for the purpose of producing active heating. Information on the impact of the radiofrequency ablation on the neuroendocrine carcinomas is also presented.

    Purpose: Catheter-tissue contact force (CF) is a major determinant for radiofrequency (RF) ablation lesion size and quality. We sought to test the influence of catheter CF on lesion formation by using an open-irrigated electrode-laser mapping and ablation (ELMA) catheter. Methods: With the ELMA...
