Bilio-pancreatic malignant neoplastic diseases are characterized by aggressive evolution and low 5-year survival rates. The only therapeutic method with curative potential remains surgical treatment. Unfortunately, a very high percentage of patients are diagnosed in advanced stages, no longer suitable for surgical resection. Studies in recent years have focused on identifying new therapeutic techniques to improve the quality of life and survival of these patients. One of these techniques is endoscopic radiofrequency ablation, that showed good results in terms of morbidity and mortality, with an acceptable rate of complications.
