Abstract

This report presents the case of a patient with mediastinal liposarcoma treated by radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in an open thoracotomy setting. This procedure is safe and feasible, and it appears to be an effective option for patients with soft tissue sarcoma originating from the mediastinum, especially for patients who are not well suited to undergo a further surgical resection. This report on a new type of RFA treatment for mediastinal liposarcoma may therefore be informative for general thoracic surgeons.
