Noninvasive approaches for anxiety reduction during interventional radiology procedures Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Topics in Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Periprocedural anxiety is a major cause of morbidity, particularly for interventional radiology procedures that often depend on conscious sedation. Management of anxiety and pain during image-guided procedures has traditionally relied on pharmacologic agents such as benzodiazepines and opioids. Although generally safe, use of these medications risks adverse events, and newer noninvasive, nonpharmacologic techniques have evolved to address patient needs.  READ MORE

Safety and efficacy of endovascular implantation of a portal vein stent combined with iodine-125 seed-strips followed by transcatheter arterial chemoembolization with sorafenib for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma with portal vein tumor thrombosi Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The British Institute of Radiology
To assess the safety and efficacy of endovascular implantation of a portal vein stent combined with iodine-125 seed-strips followed by transcatheter arterial chemoembolization with sorafenib (PVS-125I-TACE-S) for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT).  READ MORE

Comparison between percutaneous and laparoscopic microwave ablation of hepatocellular carcinoma Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
International Journal of Hyperthermia
Based on patient and tumor characteristics, some authors favor laparoscopic microwave ablation (LMWA) over the percutaneous approach (PMWA) for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We compared the two techniques in terms of technique efficacy, local tumor progression (LTP) and complication rates.  READ MORE


Ablation zone geometry after CT-guided hepatic microwave ablation: Evaluation of a semi-automatic software and comparison of two different ablation systems Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
International Journal of Hyperthermia
The aims of this study were to evaluate a semi-automatic segmentation software for assessment of ablation zone geometry in computed tomography (CT)-guided microwave ablation (MWA) of liver tumors and to compare two different MWA systems.  READ MORE


Transarterial chemoembolization of unresectable systemic chemotherapy refractory liver metastases: A retrospective single-center analysis Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Abdominal Radiology via Springer Link
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy and safety of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) in the treatment of patients with unresectable colorectal cancer liver metastases (CRCLM) who had failed systemic chemotherapy. In addition, the role of TACE in the treatment of CRCLM is also worth discussing.  READ MORE


Image-guided mini-invasive treatments for vascular and oncologic diseases: Embolization therapy Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
International Conference on BioNam via Springer Link
Transcatheter Embolization, also called Embolotherapy, is a mini-invasive, non-surgical therapeutic solution used in Interventional Radiology to close blood vessels deliberately. A wide range of embolic agents is available in clinical practice, including metal coils and liquid agents. More recent advances in biomaterials such as shape-memory foam and in-situ gelling solutions have led to the development of new pre-clinical embolic agents.  READ MORE


The therapeutic benefits of combined sorafenib for intermediate stage hepatocellular carcinoma unresponsive to transarterial chemoembolization in a Chinese population Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Journal of Digestive Diseases via Wiley Online Library
Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the treatment modality to the intermediate stage, or BCLC stage B hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the benefit to outcomes is still low. The aim of this study was to assess the outcomes of combined TACE and sorafenib to the patients with intermediate HCC.  READ MORE
