Analgesic effect of high intensity focused ultrasound therapy for unresectable pancreatic cancer

2019-11-13 18:01

High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a novel therapeutic modality. Several preclinical and clinical studies have investigated the safety and efficacy of HIFU for treating solid tumours, including pancreatic cancer. Preliminary studies suggest that HIFU may be useful for the palliative therapy of cancerrelated pain in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer.

highintensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is most expected as new advanced therapy for unresectable pancreatic cancer (PC). HIFU therapy with chemotherapy is being promoted as new method to control local advance by ablation tumor, and mainly achieve relief of pain caused by PC. AIMS& METHODS: We have evaluated the Nov 28, 2014 As a noninvasive approach, high intensity focused ultrasound therapy can selectively ablate a targeted lesion of the pancreas. Preliminary studies indicate that this approach is safe and feasible, and can be used alone or in combination with chemotherapy. analgesic effect of high intensity focused ultrasound therapy for unresectable pancreatic cancer J Clin Oncol 1997; 15: . 20 Wang K, Chen Z, Meng Z, Lin J, Zhou Z, Wang P, et al.

Pancreatic cancer is under high mortality but has few effective treatment modalities. Highintensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is becoming an emerging approach of noninvasively ablating solid tumor in clinics.
