Histologically-Proven Efficacy of Bland Embolization in a Patient with Net Liver Metastasis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We present a case of 57-year-old patient with three liver metastases from a primary neuroendocrine duodenal tumor, who underwent bland embolization with excellent response to therapy, followed by surgical resection. The purpose of our case report is to describe the histological characteristics of tumoral response to therapy after bland embolization focusing on intralesional necrosis and microsphere distribution.
