Abstract

The authors report 11 cases of bone metastasis treated with selective arterial embolization (SAE). One case of adjuvant SAE and ten cases of palliative SAE. Pain regression was observed in 66% of patients. The low number of cases treated and the short life expectancy of these patient doesn't allow prognostic evaluations. However SAE is useful in pain control and helps patients to improve quality of life. The increased use of SAE is due to lack of alternative treatment.
