Sepsis and liver abscess are serious complications following transarterial embolization (TAE) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the exact incidence and the necessity of antibiotic prophylaxis remain undetermined. Between November 1996 and November 1997, we prospectively studied bacterial infections in 231 HCC patients who underwent 287 angiographic procedures without antibiotic prophylaxis, including 176 TAEs and 111 hepatic arteriographies (HAs). Four of the 111 HAs were complicated… CONTINUE READING
