Summary of "Nitroglycerine use in transcatheter arterial (chemo) embolization in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma: Five-year retrospective study."

Addition of nitroglycerine (NTG) to transcatheter arterial embolization/transarterial chemoembolization (TAE/TACE) has been shown to increase deposition of Lipiodol emulsion in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumors. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate if the addition of nitroglycerin (NTG) to TAE/TACE improved treatment response in HCC.

Transcatheter arterial embolization of acute bleeding as 24/7 service: predictors of outcome and mortality.

To analyze times of occurrence and identify risk factors (RFs) for technical and clinical failure and mortality of transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) of acute bleeding in a major hospital.

Successful transcatheter arterial embolization of a ruptured right gastroepiploic artery aneurysm: A case report.

Gastroepiploic artery aneurysms (GEAAs) are extremely rare. Ruptured GEAAs are related to high mortality and often treated by open surgery. We describe a case of a ruptured right GEAA that was success...

Epirubicin is More Effective than Miriplatin in Balloon-Occluded Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization for Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a standard therapy used in the treatment of intermediate hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, balloon-occluded TACE (B-TACE) has been developed.

Hepatocellular carcinoma with thoracic metastases presenting as hemothorax: A case report and literature review.

Hemothorax caused by metastasis or direct invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the chest is rare. We report a case of hemothorax caused by metastasis in the mediastinum and treated with trans...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blocking of a blood vessel by CHOLESTEROL-rich atheromatous deposits, generally occurring in the flow from a large artery to small arterial branches. It is also called arterial-arterial embolization or atheroembolism which may be spontaneous or iatrogenic. Patients with spontaneous atheroembolism often have painful, cyanotic digits of acute onset.

Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.

The use of embolizing agents to block the arterial blood supply to parts or all of the UTERUS. The procedures are done to control bleeding or to cause destruction of uterine tissues.

A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.

Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are invasive or surgical in nature, and require the expertise of a specially trained radiologist. In general, they are more invasive than diagnostic imaging but less invasive than major surgery. They often involve catheterization, fluoroscopy, or computed tomography. Some examples include percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, percutaneous transthoracic biopsy, balloon angioplasty, and arterial embolization.
