Authors: Thudium M, Bette B, Tonguc T, Ghaei S, Conrad R, Becher MU, Mücke M, Luechters G, Strunk H, Marinova M Abstract Introduction: High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for pancreatic cancer is a growing therapeutic field which has been proven to reduce cancer pain and provide a local tumor control additionally to standard palliative care. However, less is known about the multidisciplinary and especially anesthesiological management of HIFU treatment although an interdisciplinary approach is crucial for treatment success.Material and methods: Anesthesiological and radiological records of 71 HIFU-treated...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo describe several effective imaging-guided, minimally invasive treatments to relieve cancer-associated pain in oncologic patients. Clinical applications, technical considerations, and current controversies are addressed.Recent FindingsThe great variability in tumor subtype, location, and growth rates dictate the necessity for a tailored treatment approach. While opioids and radiotherapy may provide adequate relief for some patients, alternative minimally invasive procedures may augment theses more traditional treatments or even provide superior palliative relief. Recent image-guided percutaneous ...
