What Is a "Procedures and Instruments" Article?

If you’ve browsed the published-ahead-of-print articles for the March issue, you’ve probably noticed something a little different in the Green Journal’s offerings. The latest issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology marks the return of the “Procedures and Instruments” article type (renamed from “Instruments and Methods”), aimed at bringing to light novel interventions, tools, and methods for clinical care and research in women’s health.
In the first article of this new type, “Image-Guided Percutaneous Thermal Ablation of Metastatic Pelvic Tumor From Gynecologic Malignancies,” Dr. Butros and his coauthors share their unique application of this technique, concluding: “Thermal ablation of metastatic or recurrent pelvic tumor is technically feasible and should be considered in selected patients with no treatment alternative.”
