Abstract

In all, 413 patients (66.3% males) with a mean age of 44.7 years (range 8-83 years) were treated with 2926 RF surgery ablations in 524 treatment sessions. There were no severe complications. The overall incidence of minor and moderate complications was low, i.e. 2.7% (11/524) and 0.6% (3/524) of the treatment sessions, and 0.5% (11/2926) and 0.1% (3/2926) of the ablations, respectively.
