From the USA: Cryoablation Effective in Breast Cancer Patients, Even With Large Tumors

Cryoablation can be performed effectively in nonsurgical breast cancer patients with varying tumors, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the Society of Interventional Radiology, held from March 23 to 28 in Salt Lake City.

Jolie Jean, M.D., from Weill Cornell, and Yolanda Bryce, M.D., from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, both in New York City, presented their technique for cryoablation of primary breast cancer (treated from January 2017 to March 2023). The analysis included 60 patients with breast cancer (48 had invasive ductal carcinoma) who were poor surgical candidates or refused surgery.
