Abstract

The patient was a 59-year-old male with chronic hepatitis type B. He was diagnosed as having multiple hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs), most of which showed hypervascular features on contrast-enhanced CT scan. He underwent the implantation of a 5-french catheter by "GDA coil method" for hepatic arterial infusion of chemotherapy. After the implantation, he suffered from high fever with a sharp elevation in transaminase levels. Since his liver function gradually deteriorated, he was not able to receive hepatic arterial infusion of chemotherapy. However, three weeks after catheter implantation, most of the tumors were no longer enhanced on dynamic CT scan, suggesting a loss of tumor vascularity, ie, induction of tumor necrosis. It was speculated that necrosis of the tumors was caused by the reduction of hepatic arterial blood flow due to the catheter placement.
