A Review of Interventional Radiology techniques in Neuroendocrine Cancer Liver Mets

Jul 24, 2020

Interventional radiology plays an important role in the management of patients with neuroendocrine cancer liver metastasis (NELM). Transarterial embolization (TAE), transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), and selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) are intra-arterial therapies used to improve symptoms and overall survival. 

The purpose of this review is to provide an updated overview of the currently reported intra-arterial embolisation procedures that are used for the treatment of NELM – concluding that whilst benefit has been seen, further studies are needed (to meet the level of evidence/data collation larger randomised controlled trials provide).
