Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate a percutaneous technique for in situ destruction of osteoid osteoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Radiofrequency ablation was performed in 18 patients with osteoid osteoma (17 male, one female; age range, 8-42 years). Diagnosis was established by means of clinical and radiographic features and confirmed by means of needle biopsy findings. No attempt was made to remove the lesion. A small radio-frequency electrode introduced into the lesion through the biopsy track was used to produce thermal necrosis of a 1-cm sphere of tissue. RESULTS: Symptoms were completely relieved in 16 (89%) of 18 patients. In one patient, a second procedure was required for pain relief. All but two patients underwent treatment as outpatients: These two were hospitalized for 1 night only. All patients resumed normal daily activities immediately. No casts or external supports were required; there were no complications. Twelve patients were followed up for more than 1 year. There were no recurrences. CONCLUSION: Radio-frequency ablation of osteoid osteoma is a promising alternative to surgery in selected patients.
