This study aimed to explore the efficacy and safety of drug-eluting bead (DEB) embolization (DEB-TACE) when combined with cryoablation in the treatment of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The study was a single-center randomized controlled trial comprised of 60 patients with HCC conducted between August 2015 and October 2017. The patients were randomly divided into two groups: DEB-TACE combined with cryoablation (DEB-TACE-Cryo group) or cryoablation alone (Cryo group). Inter-group differences in overall survival, progression-free survival, and adverse reactions were assessed...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common cancer worldwide. Only 30-40% of patients diagnosed with HCC are candidates for curative treatment options. The remaining majority of patients undergo local, regional or systemic palliative therapies. Transvascular therapy of HCC takes advantage of the fact that hypervascularized HCCs receive their main perfusion from the hepatic artery. In this context transvascular therapy describes different therapies: bland embolization (transarterial embolization, TAE), cTACE (conventional transarterial chemoembolization), DEB-TACE (TACE with drug-eluting beads, DEB) and SIRT (selective internal radiation therapy, radioembolization)...

Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) represents the current gold standard for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients in intermediate stage. Conventional TACE (cTACE) is performed with the injection of an emulsion of a chemotherapeutic drug with lipiodol into the artery feeding the tumoral nodules, followed by embolization of the same vessel to obtain a synergistic effect of drug cytotoxic activity and ischemia. Aim of this review is to summarize the main characteristics of drug-eluting beads (DEB)-TACE and the clinical results reported so far in the literature...

A 73-year-old woman with hepatocellular carcinoma localised to the liver was treated with doxorubicin-loaded drug-eluting beads through transcatheter arterial chemoembolisation (DEB-TACE). She developed subcutaneous, erythematous, tender nodules in her abdomen 3 days after the procedure. PET/CT scan that was done to evaluate for evidence of disease progression showed mild avidity of these nodules. Biopsy showed fatty necrosis. Nodules started to improve spontaneously 2 weeks after onset. At 8 weeks after onset, lesions stabilised in size and the associated tenderness and erythema resolved...

Management of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) can be maximized with the utilization of multiple treatment modalities including transplant, surgical resection and locoregional therapies including ablative therapies and transarterial embolotherapies. Although transplant and surgical resection offer the best clinical outcomes, a limited number of patients are amenable to these surgical treatment options due to the advanced disease at presentation. Transarterial embolotherapies including conventional transarterial chemoembolization (cTACE), bland transarterial embolization (TAE), drug-eluting beads transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) and selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) with Yttrium 90 (90Y) have played an increasingly important role for these patients with unresectable HCC...

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is used as a palliative treatment for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) worldwide. Recently, a novel drug delivery-embolic agent, the drug-eluting bead (DEB), was introduced for TACE. There are a few reports of tumor hemorrhage after TACE using DEB (DEB-TACE) for HCC. However, there have not been any reports of hemobilia immediately after DEB-TACE for an HCC with intrahepatic bile duct invasion. Here, the first such case is reported. A 71-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital to undergo DEB-TACE for multiple HCCs with worsening left intrahepatic bile duct dilatation...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most prevalent and the second highest cause of death among cancer. The treatment of large solitary nodule HCC is still challenging. Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and liver resection are two modalities of therapy in HCC management. However, recurrence rate from each therapy is relatively high. We report a case of 46-year-old man diagnosed with large solitary nodule HCC, who was treated with drug eluting bead TACE (DEB-TACE) prior to liver resection. Studies about this combination are still limited and showed various results...

BACKGROUND: A meta-analysis comparing drug-eluting beads transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) with conventional transarterial chemoembolization (cTACE) has recently been published. On balance, no significant differences were found in terms of objective response and overall survival. The impact on healthcare costs had been studied in small series based on a hypothetical model and was in favor of DEB-TACE. We aimed to evaluate and compare health-care costs and effectiveness of both modalities in a cohort of patients from Nottingham, UK...

Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the current standard of therapy for patients with intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) according to the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer classification. The concept of conventional TACE (cTACE) is the selective obstruction of tumor-feeding artery by injection of chemotherapeutic agents, leading to ischemic necrosis of the target tumor via cytotoxic and ischemic effects. Drug-eluting beads (DEBs) have been imposed as novel drug-delivering agents for TACE, which allows for higher concentrations of drugs within the target tumor and lower systemic concentrations compared with cTACE...
