of 'Nonsurgical therapies for localized hepatocellular carcinoma: Radiofrequency ablation, percutaneous ethanol injection, thermal ablation, and cryoablation'
Intratumor ethanol injection.
J Surg Oncol Suppl. 1993;3:97.
In this discussion, the history of development of intratumor ethanol injection therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma, the principle, indications, technique, and our own experience in 125 patients are described. This therapy is perhaps preferred to other modalities for small, small-numbered cancers in patients with poor risk for resection.
