Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization for Unresectable Metastatic Hepatic Lesions of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors


Introduction: The blood supply of metastatic hepatic neuroendocrine tumors is mainly supplied by hepatic arteries. For unresectable metastatic NETs, selective embolisation of the hepatic arteries may be therapeutic.

Aim(s): To operate transcatheter arterial chemoembolization for metastatic hepatic NETs of pancreas origin and observe its value.

Materials and methods: The clinical and pathological datas of 27 patients who were performed TACE in our hospital from Sep 2004 to Dec 2013 were retrospectively analysed.
