Pain Analysis in Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Irreversible Electroporation versus Radiofrequency Ablation-Initial Observations
Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, 07/05/2012

Both modalities were well tolerated by patients. Prospective, randomized trials are necessary to further evaluate these findings.
