Cryoablation improves survival more than thermal ablation for renal cell carcinoma patients

Cryoablation may be associated with longer overall survival than heat-based thermal ablation in clinical T1a renal cell carcinoma (RCC), concludes a recent study published in the Journal of Vascular Interventional Radiology. To date, this is the largest study comparing overall survival between two ablative therapies in these patients.
