Abstract

Percutaneous ablation of benign musculoskeletal tumors in children has become an area of significant clinical growth over the last decade. With growing research interest, the technologies available and techniques used are becoming increasingly safe and effective. We review some of the more common ablation technologies and their utility in several common benign bone and soft tissue tumors that occur in children and young adults.
