Sclerotic vertebral metastases: pain palliation using percutaneous image-guided cryoablation

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol. 2011 Feb;34 Suppl 2:S294-9. doi: 10.1007/s00270-010-0085-7. Epub 2010 Dec 18.

Abstract

Cryoablative therapies have been proposed to palliate pain from soft-tissue or osteolytic bone tumors. A case of a patient with painful thoracic and sacral spine sclerotic metastases successfully treated by image-guided percutaneous cryoablation with the aid of insulation techniques and thermosensors is reported in this case report.
