abstract

  • Cryoablation is safe and effective in treating breast fibroadenomas. It offers a nonsurgical, office-based treatment that is well tolerated by patients and accurately monitored with ultrasonographic guidance. At 12 months we found progressive tumor volume reduction and reduced palpability, with no volume deficit, excellent cosmesis, and satisfied patients. Ultrasonography-guided cryoablation is a preferred option for treatment of breast fibroadenomas without open surgery.
