The purpose of this pilot study was to assess the effectiveness of repeated bland-TAE using small-size microspheres for liver metastases. To date, there have been no publications as to whether bland-TAE could be effective for nonhypervascular liver tumors. Bland-TAE with 100-μm, calibrated microspheres was performed in two chemoresistant patients: one with(More)
The patient was a 54-year-old female presented with severe abdominal swelling and intermittent pain. On emergent CT, massive ascites with thickened peritoneum and intra-pelvic cystic mass approximately 20 cm in diameter were observed. The cyst wall showed redundant irregular shape. The uterus was enlarged with intramural mass located at its right anterior(More)
We report a 60-year-old female with locally advanced pancreatic cancer successfully treated with stereotactic radiotherapy after arterial chemoinfusion. Using the indwelling catheter-port system with the unification of the pancreatic blood supply, we initially conducted an arterial infusion of weekly high-dose 5-FU (1,000 mg/m2/qw) combined with systemic(More)
Hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAIC) combined with sorafenib is considered to be a promising therapeutic strategy for patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. However, this combination therapy carries the risk of hepatic arterial thrombosis (HAT), which interrupts the continuation of HAIC, due to the side-effects of sorafenib. This case(More)
OBJECTIVE Miriplatin(MP) is a promising newly developed anticancer agent for transcatheter arterial chemoinfusion in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC), particularly those previously not treated with chemotherapy. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of transarterial chemolipiodolization with MP for recurrent HCC in patients(More)
We report a case of a 50-year-old male with isolated pancreatic metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), in which chemical shift magnetic resonance imaging detected the presence of fat, and which mimicked fatty replacement. A solitary metastatic pancreatic tumor originating from HCC is very rare. Furthermore, we believe that this is the first report(More)
A 70-year-old man with liver cirrhosis due to hepatitis C viral infection had a single well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC) of 5-cm diameter in the right superior anterior segment of the liver. Surgery could not be performed because of his poor liver function. Furthermore, it was difficult to treat this tumor with transcatheter arterial(More)
INTRODUCTION Surgical endarterectomy is the preferred method for treating occlusive disease of the common femoral artery (CFA). However, endarterectomy is not always straightforward in cases with heavily calcified plaque. To overcome this limitation, a new method for decalcification, which utilizes a Cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator (CUSA) has been(More)
Transcatheter embolization is considered to be less effective for early-stage hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) without a hypervascular arterial supply. In the present case report, a 65-year-old male with hepatitis type C and non-hypervascular HCC located in the hepatic hilum was successfully treated by bland transarterial embolization (TAE). After the(More)
