Technical efficacy and local recurrence after stereotactic radiofrequency ablation of 2653 liver tumors: a 15-year single-center experience with evaluation of prognostic factors
CONCLUSIONS: Stereotactic RFA is an attractive option in the management of primary or metastatic liver tumors with good local tumor control, even in large tumors. The presented prognostic factors for adverse local oncological outcome might help to stratify unfavorable tumors for ablation.PMID:35227136 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2044522 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)

Effect of Hashimoto's thyroiditis on the extent of the ablation zone in early stages of ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation for papillary thyroid microcarcinoma: a large cohort study of 772 patients
CONCLUSION: RFA-treated PTMCs were smaller in size in patients with HT than in those with a healthy thyroid at 1 week of RFA. However, the exact mechanism underlying this phenomenon and its clinical significance warrant further investigation.PMID:35209788 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2041736 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)

High intensity focused ultrasound combined with ultrasound-guided suction curettage treatment for cesarean scar pregnancy: a comparison of different HIFU sonication strategies
CONCLUSIONS: The 'I-shape' strategy of HIFU treatment for CSP was effective and safe, with shorter sonication time, less energy input and lower incidence of sonication-related pain occurred in postoperative lower abdominal and sciatic nerve/buttock.PMID:35196957 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2044078 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)

Hyperthermia inhibits growth of nasopharyngeal carcinoma through degradation of c-Myc
CONCLUSION: Our study reveals that hyperthermia can readily destabilize c-Myc levels in NPC cells and inhibit tumor growth. This proposes new strategies for implementing hyperthermia to target c-Myc-driven cancers to improve therapeutic efficacy.PMID:35184661 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2038282 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)

Comparison of efficacy, safety, and patient satisfaction between thermal ablation, conventional/open thyroidectomy, and endoscopic thyroidectomy for symptomatic benign thyroid nodules
CONCLUSIONS: Compared to ConT and ET, TA has comparable efficacy, safety, and patient satisfaction and exhibits greater protection of thyroid function for the treatment of symptomatic BTNs.PMID:35188057 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2040608 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)
