Chondroblastomas are benign cartilaginous lesions; however, intervention is necessary to stop progression and alleviate pain. The authors evaluated three patients in whom minimally invasive percutaneous radio-frequency heat ablation was used to treat pathologically proven chondroblastoma to determine whether this treatment demonstrated long-term success. The authors found that this approach may be an effective alternative to surgical intervention in some cases.
