The authors report the initial experience with transarterial embolization of large hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with use of superabsorbent polymer microsphere (SAP-MS) particles. Six patients with nine HCCs (mean diameter, 8.2 cm) underwent 10 embolization procedures. Two patients underwent surgery later. In follow-up, tumor necrosis, postembolization syndrome, and laboratory data were assessed. Complete necrosis in three nodules, nearly complete necrosis in three nodules, and partial… CONTINUE READING
