DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.143
Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the clinical effects of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) postoperative residual tumor in liver cancer. RFA can efficiently clear the TACE postoperative residual tumor and prolong both progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).

INTRODUCTION

Hip arthroplasty is one of the most common surgical procedures for pain relief due to coxarthrosis. However, the operation is contraindicated for some elderly patients because of multiple co-morbidities. On the other hand, conventional drugs have either too many side effects or are ineffective. Major symptoms of patients with hip pain include groin, thigh and trochanteric pain.
