Percutaneous microwave hepatic tumor coagulation with segmental hepatic blood flow occlusion in seven patients.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE We assess the usefulness of microwave hepatic tumor coagulation therapy with balloon occlusion of segmental hepatic blood flow for eight recurrent metastatic hepatic tumors in seven patients. CONCLUSION Limited early experience with microwave hepatic tumor coagulation therapy and segmental hepatic blood flow occlusion has been positive, suggesting that further clinical evaluation is warranted.
