Nomori H, Yamazaki I, Adachi T. Cryoablation Using Liquid Nitrogen for Metastatic Lung Cancers. Clin Oncol. 2022;7:1932.
Summary: 68 patients with 121 metastatic lung tumors were treated with cryoablation using the ProSense™ liquid nitrogen System between 2013 and 2019. This retrospective observational study found that (1) cryoablation using liquid nitrogen would be one of the treatment methods for metastatic lung cancers <2.2 cm; and (2) pulmonary function decreased significantly when cryoablation was performed for an increasing number of tumors.
