Percutaneous thermal ablation is widely used for local control and palliation of a variety of lesions throughout the musculoskeletal system. In this setting, safe ablation is predicated on the avoidance of unintentional injury to vulnerable neural structures that are often in proximity to ablation targets. This article highlights key periprocedural considerations in musculoskeletal ablation and reviews the array of active and passive thermoprotective measures that are critical to safe and successful treatment.
