Conclusion
- Complications after cryosurgery with new miniature cryoprobes in long hollow bones: An animal trial



In conclusion the use of modern miniature cryoprobes for cryoablation of bone tissue seems to be a gentle method, and the complications reported for earlier systems did not occur in this study. Therefore, this cryosurgical technique has a pontential in human subjects and could be usefull either to complement conventional resections, or else as a minimally invasive alternative procedure.
