Abstract

A meta-analysis of 5224 hepatic tumors treated by radiofrequency coagulation was carried out. In a multivariate analysis, significantly less local recurrences were observed for small size (P < 0.001) and a surgical approach (P < 0.001). The percutaneous route should mainly be reserved for patients who cannot tolerate a laparoscopy or laparotomy.
