Abstract

RFA of SRM is successful in a large percentage of cases with a low complication rate and durable local control. As RFA is typically performed in multimorbid patients, overall survival seems to depend primarily on comorbidities rather than cancer progression. Key Points • RFA of SRM is technically successful in the majority of cases. • RFA leads to a high degree of local tumor control. • Post-RFA most patients ultimately die of comorbidities. • Overall survival post-RFA does not significantly differ between benign and malignant tumors in multimorbid patients.
