Pressure-directed embolotherapy using antireflux devices to perform liver directed regional therapy

Pressure-directed embolotherapy using antireflux devices to perform liver directed regional therapy

Tuesday, 08 Jul 2014
Unintended non-target delivery of embolic agents into any of the various hepaticoentric arteries that course from an intrahepatic artery to implant into an extra hepatic organ such as the stomach or small intestine can result in serious complications, especially gastrointestinal ulcerations, particularly with Y-90 microspheres. Now, temporary antireflux devices are available that appear to provide both adequate retrograde and antegrade protection against nontarget delivery of cytotoxic agents, Pressure-directed embolotherapy using antireflux devices to perform liver directed regional therapy
