RF (Radiofrequency) "treatment of choice" for child bone tumours:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Radiofrequency (RF) ablation should be considered the "treatment of choice" for benign bone tumours called osteoid osteomas, according to a study in this month's Radiology. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, US, followed 263 patients over an 11-year period and found that symptoms were completely relieved in 89% of cases. Usually found in the lower extremities of children and young adults, the tumours are typically removed via surgical excision. RF ablation is less invasive and can be done as an outpatient procedure.
