Radioembolization for Neuroendocrine Liver Metastases: An Institutional Case Series, Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis


Introduction: Neuroendocrine liver metastases are clinically challenging and often non-resectable due to their frequent disseminated distribution. Radioembolisation with yttrium-90 labelled microspheres represents an emerging modality for NELM.

Aim(s): This study aims to present a single-centre experience with radioembolisation, and embed this within a systematic review and meta-analysis of response and survival outcomes.

Materials and methods: Retrospective case series of patients treated with SIR-Spheres at a British ENETS Centre of Excellence was performed. Results were included in a systematic review and meta-analysis of published results with glass or resin microspheres. Objective response rate (ORR) was defined as complete or partial response. Disease control rate (DCR) was defined as complete/partial response or stable disease.
