Abstract

Prognosis of unresectable pancreatic cancer is poor with the rate of surviving more than 5 years is less than 10% despite multi-modalities treatment. The American Society of Clinical Oncology suggested that all patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer should be offered information about clinical trials. Endoscopic ultrasound guided radio frequency ablation has been recently used in patients with advanced stage pancreatic cancer in a few studies. This article has reviewed information from published articles using endoscopic ultrasound guided radio frequency ablation for advanced pancreatic cancer.
