Abstract

The effectiveness of radiofrequency (RF) thermal ablation against percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI) in the treatment of small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was evaluated. Eighty patients with either single or multiple nodular-type HCC lesions 3 cm or less in diameter were randomly assigned to either RF ablation. RF treatment was performed by using either cooled-tip electrode needles or expandable electrode needles. Therapeutic response was assessed by dual phase spiral computerized tomography.
