Lung tumors are effectively managed through surgery. But for inoperable lung cancerssuch as in advanced stages, poor respiratory function and other diseases like pulmonaryinflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (PIMT), minimal invasive techniques likepercutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) therapy is the preferred treatment option. MWAis a curative alternative approach used to destroy malignant tumor cells with minimalnormal tissue damage. This instrument uses high frequency microwave energy waves thatproduce tissue-heating effects to destruct solid tumors. The purpose of this case report isto illustrate how MWA effectively managed four various cases of lung cancer.
