Abstract

The experimental model presented here describes the first time the ability to carry out radiofrequency ablation in nude rats with intrafemoral induced osteolytic metastases of human breast cancer. RFA in human breast cancer cell line in nude rats is a feasible and useful possibility to evaluate and to test different RF-procedures. Additional treatment options like local chemotherapy or chemoembolization can be performed.
