Objective To investigate the associated complication of small Hepatocellular carcinoma near the top of diaphragm with the treatment of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and the safety of the CT-guided RFA. Methods 43 cases with 67 lesions received the intentional procedure of RFA. Results All lesions’ completely necrosis rates was 92.5%(62/67), the lesions (diameter≤3.0 cm) was 94.2%(49/52) and the lesions (diameter3.1 cm) was 86.7%(13/15). There was no treatment-related mortality in the studied group. The major complications included ache (26 cases), dyspnoea (7 cases), pleural effusion (6 case), pneumothorax (3 case), tsubcapsular hemorrhag of liver (3 case), hiccup (6 cases). Conclusion RFA is a safe minimal invasive method in the treatment of small hepatocellular carcinoma near the top of diaphragm.
