multi-pronged ethanol ablation
Procedure: multi-pronged ethanol ablation
Under ultrasound guidance, insert an applicator into the tumor percutaneously and then inject ethanol to destroy the whole tumor tissue.
Active Comparator: RFA
Procedure: radiofrequency ablation
Under ultrasound guidance, insert an applicator into the tumor percutaneously and then deliver radiofrequency energy to destroy the whole tumor tissue.
- Local treatment responses [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
- Disease-free survivals and overall survivals [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
