Abstract

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has recently been proposed as a local treatment for functional pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms in patients unfit for surgery, in order to obtain clinical syndrome regression. Data on the safety and long-term effectiveness of this approach are scarce, and EUS-RFA procedures are not standardized.
