Preoperative transcatheter arterial embolization for hypervascular bone tumors is now widely accepted as a safe and effective procedure for reducing intraoperative blood loss and surgical morbidity. However, few studies have reported the use of preoperative transcatheter arterial embolization for nonspine bone metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma. The goal of this study was to assess the effect of preoperative embolization on blood loss and clinical outcomes in surgery for nonspine bone…

Preoperative embolization in surgical treatment of long bone metastasis: a systematic literature review

There were no studies found that support preoperative embolization of thyroid metastases or other frequent long bone metastases, and randomized studies taking into account primary tumour, location of metastases and type of surgery are desired.

Preoperative transarterial embolization using a gelatin sponge appears to be feasible and safe, and may contribute to decreasing intraoperative blood loss.

Current Overview of Treatment for Metastatic Bone Disease

Recently, many novel palliative treatment options have emerged for bone metastases, such as stereotactic body radiation therapy, radiopharmaceuticals, vertebroplasty, minimally invasive spine stabilization with percutaneous pedicle screws, acetabuloplasty, embolization, thermal ablation techniques, electrochemotherapy, and high-intensity focused ultrasound.

The use of CBCT-ABS during the preoperative embolization of pelvic bone tumors significantly reduces the number of angiographic runs at the cost of an increased radiation dose.

What’s new in management of bone metastases?

Advances in interventional radiology and surgery have led to the development of less invasive techniques with the aim to achieve the same clinical results with less surgical morbidity, and these include embolization, electrochemotherapy, magnetic resonance imaging-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound, and thermal ablation.

The purpose of this review is to summarize the recently published literature regarding interventional radiology procedures in the treatment of cancer patients with bone metastases, focusing on the efficacy, complications, local disease control and recurrence rate.



Preoperative embolization of bone metastases from renal cell carcinoma

Preoperative embolization of bone metastases from renal cell carcinoma with subsequent complete devascularization leads to significant reduction of blood loss during surgery, and conventional radiologists should pursue and embolize every feeder to the metastasis.

Embolization of bone metastases.

Preoperative embolization in the treatment of osseous metastases from renal cell carcinoma.

Embolization of spinal metastases, although technically demanding, has been effective in devascularizing these lesions without serious neurologic complications and supports the growing evidence for the efficacy and safety of selective arterial embolization in the preoperative control of hemostasis in patients with metastatic hypernephroma.
