Abstract

Whilst surgical resection is traditionally used for the successful eradication of locally aggressive osseous tumors, it is often hazardous or unachievable, particularly in complex anatomic sites, such as the pelvis and spine. The authors present the use of microwave ablation in combination with Zoledronic acid (ZA) administration, alone and with the use of ZA-loaded polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) to percutaneously treat unresectable bone tumors in 4 patients with giant cell tumors (GCT), multiple myeloma (MM) and breast cancer metastasis.
