Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma often die from intrahepatic disease since current treatment options are generally limited. Local treatment using holmium radioembolization could offe...
The main objective is to establish the feasibility of 166-Holmium microspheres for intratumoral injections in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) of the tongue. Participants will receive ...
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies how well perflutren protein-type A microspheres and contrast-enhanced ultrasound work in improving response to radioembolization therapy in pat...
This is a phase I dose escalation study (3+3 design) with a dose expansion arm (12 patients) designed to evaluate safety of the combination of Tas-102 and radioembolization using Yttrium-9...
This pilot clinical trial studies how well contrast-enhanced ultrasound in diagnosing patients with liver cancer who are undergoing Yttrium-90 radioembolization. Contrast-enhanced ultrasou...
The aim of this study was the development of radioactive holmium phosphate microspheres (HoPO-MS) with a high holmium content and that are stable in human serum for selective internal radiation therap...
Prior to Y radioembolization, a pre-treatment procedure is performed, in which Tc-macroaggerated albumin ( Tc-MAA) is administered to estimate the amount of activity shunting to the lungs. A high lu...
Y microspheres have been widely used for treatment of liver-dominant malignancies. There have been a few case reports of radiation dermatitis post-inadvertent falciform artery Y radioembolization and ...
To assess radiation-induced cholecystitis in cases of cystic artery origin nearby the treatment zone for transarterial radioembolization (TARE) treatment.
Eight patients with primary (n = 6) and metastatic (n = 2) disease of the liver underwent yttrium-90 radioembolization with glass microspheres using a combination of segmental and ipsilateral lobar ...
Holmium. An element of the rare earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol Ho, atomic number 67, and atomic weight 164.93.
Educational programs for medical graduates entering a specialty. They include formal specialty training as well as academic work in the clinical and basic medical sciences, and may lead to board certification or an advanced medical degree.
Small uniformly-sized spherical particles, of micrometer dimensions, frequently labeled with radioisotopes or various reagents acting as tags or markers.
Medical complexes consisting of medical school, hospitals, clinics, libraries, administrative facilities, etc.
A biocompatible, hydrophilic, inert gel that is permeable to tissue fluids. It is used as an embedding medium for microscopy, as a coating for implants and prostheses, for contact lenses, as microspheres in adsorption research, etc.
