Abstract

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is commonly used for treating unresectable hepatic malignancies. Some commonly associated complications of RFA include fever, symptomatic pleural effusion, abscess, hepatoma and hepatic insufficiency. Here, we report a case of diaphragmatic hernia in a patient following RFA for hepatic malignancy with cirrhosis.
