Title: A Spectrum of Nerve Injury after Thermal Ablation: A Report of Four Cases and Review of the Literature

Thermal ablation is an accepted alternative for the palliation of pain from bone metastases. Although rare, neurologic complications after thermal ablation have been reported. We present four cases, including two cases of rapid reversal of postcryoablation neurapraxia after the administration of steroid therapy, and review the literature.
