Lesson description:

Loco regional therapies currently used to palliate symptoms and to control disease, represent an important tool in the treatment of liver metastases, and in some cancers, have been shown to prolong survival. The goal of ablation is to treat the tumor and a margin of tissue around it.

In general, ablation therapy achieves the best results when administered by an experienced surgeon. It may be considered as an alternative or complement to surgery and, in some instances, a potentially curative intervention.

As longevity increases and personalized medicine evolves, the need for minimally invasive, targeted, nonsurgical interventions will increase. This course provides complete coverage of ablation techniques used on different diseases.
