Abstract

We report the clinical experience of radiofrequency ablation followed by radiation therapy for large primary lung tumors. Two patients with large primary lung tumors were treated with combined radiofrequency ablation and radiation therapy, and good local control was observed. Combined radiofrequency ablation and radiation therapy that involves minimally invasive techniques appears to be promising for the treatment of large lung tumors. Copyright
