Comparative analysis of Laparoscopic versus open surgical radiofrequency ablation for malignant liver tumors.

Yun D, Kim S, Song I, Chun K - Korean J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Surg (2014)

Bottom Line: There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups in terms of recurrence rate (p=0.337) and overall survival (p=0.423).However, patients in the laparoscopic RFA group had significantly shorter hospital stay (14.1 vs. 5.9 days, p<0.05) and experienced fewer complications (Grade I: 62.5% vs. 26.3%, p=0.102).Laparoscopic RFA can be performed for malignant liver tumors with lower morbidity rates, less invasiveness and lower expense compared to open surgical approach.

ABSTRACT

Backgrounds/aims: This study aims to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of two surgical approaches on the treatment outcomes of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for malignant liver tumors.

Methods: Fifty-seven patients with malignant liver tumors, hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma and liver metastases, who were candidates for RFA, underwent laparoscopic or open surgical treatments.

Results: The patients' characteristics were comparable in the two groups that received open (n=33, 57.9%) and laparoscopic (n=24, 42.1%) surgical treatments. There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups in terms of recurrence rate (p=0.337) and overall survival (p=0.423). However, patients in the laparoscopic RFA group had significantly shorter hospital stay (14.1 vs. 5.9 days, p<0.05) and experienced fewer complications (Grade I: 62.5% vs. 26.3%, p=0.102).

Conclusions: Laparoscopic RFA can be performed for malignant liver tumors with lower morbidity rates, less invasiveness and lower expense compared to open surgical approach.

Figure 2: Comparison of overall survival rates after open and laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation liver metastasis from colorectal cancer.

Mentions: During the follow-up period, there were no mortalities associated with the surgery. One patient each with HCC died of disease progression at thirty and at six months after undergoing open and laparoscopic RFA. The three-year overall survival rates of patients with metastatic tumors from colorectal cancer who underwent open and laparoscopic RFA were 83.7% and 64.0%, respectively (Fig. 2).
