TREATMENT OF HEPATIC HYDATID CYST IN A 7-YEAR OLD BOY USING A NEW TYPE OF RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION ELECTRODE 

 

Authors: Evanthia Botsa, Ioanna Thanou, Ioannis Nikas, Loukas Thanos 

This case report, performed with a CysTip™ electrode (diameter 1.5 mm, length 15 cm) (RF Medical Co. Ltd, Seoul, Korea) connected to a radiofrequency generator M-3004 (200W Multifunctional Generator®, RF Medical Co. Ltd., Seoul, Korea).”, concludes: 

“We described a pediatric patient with hepatic hydatid cyst treated with a new radiofrequency electrode called CystTip. This type of electrode ensures simultaneous drainage and ablation of the cyst, thus minimizing interventions needed and procedure duration, thereby reducing complications. Hydatid cyst treatment is achieved in a single section, since RFA causes thermal necrosis of the entire cyst wall. Furthermore, RFA avoids the use of hypertonic saline or ethanol, thus minimizing the risk of complications such as chemical cholangitis.”
