Interventional oncology: new options for interstitial treatments and intravascular approaches: right hepatic vein embolization after right portal vein embolization for inducing hypertrophy of the future liver remnant.

Abstract

Extensive hepatic resection is often associated with post-hepatectomy liver failure. Owing to the regenerative capacity of the liver, preoperative portal vein embolization (PVE) has been proposed to increase the functional mass of the non-embolized liver segments that will remain in situ after surgery. However, in some patients, hypertrophy of the non… (More)
