Hepatic artery embolization in 120 patients with unresectable hepatoma.


Transcatheter hepatic artery embolization was performed in 120 patients with unresectable hepatoma. The cumulative one-year survival rate was 44%. In most cases follow-up angiography revealed the selective disappearance of tumor vessels, and computed tomography demonstrated a marked decrease in tumor density without any changes in the surrounding liver parenchyma. Histologic examination in 14 cases confirmed these findings.
