Surgery for liver tumours can be effective but carries considerable risks. New techniques have been developed recently, involving the insertion of needle-like instruments which destroy these tumours by freezing, heating or injection of chemicals. This book describes these methods and how they can transform the treatment of this life-threatening condition.Table of Contents Preface1.
