Meainingful Clinical Outcomes
Clinical data show that rapid and lasting pain relief from metastatic spinal tumors is a reality for patients who choose Targeted Radiofrequency Ablation (t-RFA) using the STAR System.
A recent multicenter retrospective study included 128 treated lesions in 92 patients, many of whom had failed radiation therapy.
t-RFA was safe and effective, with no major complications and 54% of patients reducing pain medication usage after t-RFA.
As t-RFA does not disrupt the patients’ other therapies and protocols, it expands the range of treatment options for many patients with painful spinal tumors.
