Gastroduodenal ulceration associated with radioembolization for the treatment of liver malignancies, a newly observed complication: Institutional experience and review of the literature Abstract #15

Introduction: Microsphere radioembolization is a method of delivering radiation therapy directly to tumors, thereby minimizing toxicity to adjacent structures. Despite the relatively high precision of this modality, numerous adverse effects have been recognized. One particularly untoward complication is the development of severe gastroduodenal ulceration.
Aim(s): Since the utilization of this modality in the treatment of primary and metastatic malignancies of the liver continues to rise, we aim to promote awareness of this complication and to advance the understanding of the pathogenesis, incidence, diagnosis, and treatment of this entity.
Materials and methods: Our institutional experience of gastroduodenal ulceration in patients treated with radioembolization was analyzed and the existing literature on the subject was reviewed.

#25 Predictors of response to radio-embolization (TheraSphere ®) treatment of neuro-endocrine liver metastasis
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) frequently metastasize to the liver. Most patients have diffuse, and therefore incurable, disease. NET liver metastasis has been shown to respond to yttrium-90 microspheres therapy. This study aims to define factors that predict response to radio-embolization in patients with NET liver metastases.
