Quantifying the relationship between biofilm reduction and thermal tissue damage on metal implants exposed to alternating magnetic fields
CONCLUSION: Overall, this study demonstrates that with uniform heating to temperatures above 70 °C, an implant surface can be largely reduced of biofilm, with only a few mm of surrounding tissue damage.PMID:35634916 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2065038 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)

Dosimetric analysis of ultrasound-guided high intensity focused ultrasound ablation for breast fibroadenomas: a retrospective study
CONCLUSIONS: Fibroadenoma size, distance from the shallow margin of the fibroadenoma to skin and type of near field acoustic pathway could be used as predictors to evaluate the dosage delivery of USgHIFU treatment for breast fibroadenomas.PMID:35634911 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2074151 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)

Radiofrequency ablation for liver tumors abutting complex blood vessel structures: treatment protocol optimization using response surface method and computer modeling
CONCLUSION: This work showed that it is possible to design a few clinically-adjustable operating parameters of RFA for achieving a large tumor ablation volume while minimizing thermal damage to the surrounding blood vessels.PMID:35610101 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2075567 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)

Robotic laser position versus freehand in CT-guided percutaneous microwave ablation for single hepatocellular carcinoma (diameter & lt; 3  cm): a preliminary study
CONCLUSION: RLP guidance significantly reduces the number of antenna repositioning procedures in MWA and improves puncture accuracy for target HCC out-of-plane. In addition, the operative duration of robotic guidance was shorter than that of freehand guidance.PMID:35584811 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2022.2072526 (Source: International Journal of Hyperthermia)
