Osteoid osteoma: a propensity score matching study

These authors have compared radiofrequency ablation and magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound surgery for minimally invasive treatment of osteoid osteoma. They looked at outcomes in pain relief and motor functional recovery in osteoid osteoma patients.
Key Points:

• To demonstrate the effectiveness of a recent technique for treating osteoid osteoma.
• MRgFUS results were compared with results of the gold standard treatment (RFA).
• MRgFUS is effective both from a clinical and functional point of view.
• No significant side effects compared with RFA.
