A new designed interstitial probe (hybrid probe) was used to treat small hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC) with laserthermia. Before the human study, testing in normal rabbit liver was done to measure the thermal map. And then laserthermia was studied in human small HCC. The set condition was 43-45° C in thermocouple and the duration of laserthermia was 20 minutes. From the follow-up computed tomography and liver biopsies, laserthermia had tumorcidal effect. It is concluded that laserthermia may be helpful to the patients with small HCC.
