BACKGROUND Hepatic intra-arterial therapy for unresectable hepatocellular cancer (HCC) has been shown to improve overall survival, but can have significant toxicity. A recent prospective randomized controlled trial demonstrated superior response rates and significantly less morbidity and doxorubicin-related adverse events with drug-eluting beads with(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of image-guided delivery of locoregional chemotherapy to breast cancer hepatic metastases using doxorubicin-loaded drug-eluting beads (DEBDOX). An IRB-approved multi-center, prospective, open, non-controlled repeat treatment registry to investigate the safety and efficacy of doxorubicin microspheres in(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a challenging malignancy as a result of the advanced course at presentation. Recent interventional advances have improved treatment of lesions unamenable to resection using drug-eluting microbeads delivered into the hepatic circulation. We hypothesize that the use of hepatic arterial therapy (HAT) will safely identify(More)
