Intra-arterial treatment with 90yttrium microspheres in treatment-refractory and unresectable liver metastases of neuroendocrine tumors and the use of 111in-octreotide scintigraphy in the evaluation of treatment response.

Abstract

PURPOSE The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of intra-arterial (90)Yttrium treatment in the management of unresectable hepatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET) metastases unresponsive to treatment and the role of (111)In-octreotide scintigraphy in the evaluation of treatment response. METHODS Thirteen (13) patients with a mean age of 53.3 years… (More)
