Thermal ablation of small breast tumours: a minimally invasive technique for the destruction of breast tumours

Mundy, L, Merlin, T
Record ID 32006000624
Authors' results and conclusions: The evidence base for radiofrequency ablation of breast tumours is limited (level IV) and the number of women enrolled in these case series was small. However, the potential for uptake of this procedure, in Australia, is large, and the benefit uncertain.
Authors' recommendations: HealthPACT recommends that this technology be referred to ASERNIP-S who are conducting a review of tumour radiofrequency ablation for all indications.
