Phase II Study of Sunitinib Following Hepatic Transarterial Embolization for Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #211

Introduction: Hepatic transarterial embolization is often recommended for patients with liver-predominant metastatic NETs. Antiangiogenic therapy following embolization may delay tumor revascularization.
Aim(s): To assess radiographic response rates and progression-free survival associated with hepatic artery embolization followed by sunitinib.
Materials and methods: Patients with metastatic NETs to the liver underwent a series of selective bland arterial embolizations followed by sunitinib (one week after each embolization until disease progression or a maximum of eight cycles).

#522 Effects of Transarterial Chemoembolization of Liver Metastases from Neuroendocrine Tumors on Clinical Outcome
Introduction: Trans-catheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a method of treatment of non-resectable liver metastases from neuroendocrine tumors (NET) which provides control of clinical symptoms and tumor growth.

#133 Effectiveness of transarterial embolization of liver neuroendocrine metastases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with diffuse liver metastases have a poor prognosis and prove difficult to palliate. Somatostatin analogues and chemotherapy have been used but often are poorly tolerated and may not provide symptom relief. Transarterial Embolization (TAE) is being increasingly used to improve symptom control and reduce tumor size. We looked at the last 5-year experience of TAE in patients with hepatic metastases from neuroendocrine tumors.

Introduction: Promising results have been reported using hepatic arterial chemoembolization (CE) or embolization (E) alone in patients with liver metastases of DET, but these modalities have not been compared.
