International Multicenter Retrospective Study on the Efficacy and Toxicity of Radioembolization in Neuroendocrine Tumours with Yttrium-90 Resin Microspheres


Introduction: Radioembolization (RE) is applied worldwide in patients with liver-dominant metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (mNET). Current literature is of poor quality and based on small heterogeneous populations

Aim(s): Aim of this study was to assess efficacy and toxicity of RE with yttrium-90 resin microspheres in mNET in a large international multicenter retrospective study, to address shortcomings in current literature

Materials and methods: Only patients with baseline and follow-up CT/MRI were included. Demographic, clinical, laboratory, and imaging parameters were collected. Efficacy was assessed according to RECIST 1.1 and clinical response. Biochemical toxicity was based on CTCAE v4.03
