Retroperitoneal schwannoma treated with percutaneous computed tomography-guided radiofrequency ablation

, : Retroperitoneal schwannoma treated with percutaneous computed tomography-guided radiofrequency ablation. Journal of Neurosurgery. Spine 17(2): 173-176

Retroperitoneal schwannomas (RSs) are particularly rare tumors, and resection is the first choice for symptomatic patients. However, some RSs with anatomical complexities pose great challenges for surgeons attempting radical resection without sacrificing the nearby critical structures, and subtotal resection leads to local recurrence, especially in refractory malignant RSs. The authors have successfully applied percutaneous CT-guided radiofrequency ablation in 2 cases of RSs, with favorable long-term progression-free survival.

Solid lipid microparticles were investigated as a taste-masking approach for a lipophilic weak base in a suspension. The idea was that the drug concentration in the aqueous phase of a suspension might be reduced by its partitioning into the solid...
