The only curative treatment for patients with pancreatic cancer is surgical resection. Patients not amenable to surgery may benefit from local destructive therapy. Radiofrequency ablation induces local heat, resulting in tumour destruction. This can be a valid option in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
