ObjectiveTo evaluate the method and clinical efficacy of radiofrequency thermal ablation(RFTA) combined with percutaneous transhepatic portal vein port-catheter kit system(PVPCS) in the treatment of hepatic carcinoma (HC).In 33 patients with advanced primary or metastatic HC ,surgical resection could not be performed and embolus intervention therapy was also not suitable. They were selected to be treated with RFTA under ultrasound, then the chemotherapy was scheduled through percutaneous transhepatic PVPCS.Both of RFTA and percutaneous transhepatic PVPCS were successful, without severe complication. The partial remission rate of hepatic lesions after combined therapy was 12.1%, while the rate of stabilized cases was 30.3%.[Conclusion]RFTA combined with chemotherapy through PVPCS can markedly relieve the symptoms and inprove the life quality of patients with advanced primary HC, thus better local therapeutic efficacy is obtained.
