Synopsis: 
Microwave ablation (MWA) is a technique used to destroy tumours and soft tissues which are considered inoperable. It is also used to treat those patients who are ineligible for surgery. There is considerable efficacy of MWA guided by ultrasound in treating patients with inoperable tumours.

ABSTRACT

Aims:  Microwave ablation (MWA) is a technique which is used to destroy tumours and soft tissues by using microwave energy to create coagulation and localized tissue necrosis. It is used to treat the tumours which are considered to be inoperable and used to treat those patients who are ineligible for surgery due to some factors. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the use of MWA in the treatment of liver cancer.
