Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is one of the most commonly performed procedures in interventional radiology and is currently used for the palliative treatment of primary and metastatic hepatic malignancies. A new type of TACE is TACE with drug-eluting microspheres, which is currently gaining wide acceptance worldwide. In this article, we will review some technical components, patient selection, current results, and future directions of TACE and TACE with drug-eluting microspheres for primary and metastatic liver cancer.
