Insulinomas are rare neoplasms which may cause significant symptoms and substantially reduce quality of life. In operable patients, the current treatment is primarily surgery with either enucleation or resection of all or parts of the gland. This treatment is associated with high morbidity and long convalescence. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation is a new and minimally invasive treatment for patients with insulinomas. The purpose of this review is to draw attention to the method and to communicate our preliminary experience with this procedure in Denmark.
