What is Chemoembolization
Chemoembolization or transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is used in the treatment of hypervascularized malignant tumours. TACE therapy combines chemotherapy drugs with embolization.
TACE therapy combines chemotherapy drugs with embolization. TACE is administered to patients via a catheter which is usually introduced through the femoral artery and guided to the hepatic artery within the liver.
The primary aim of this procedure is to embolize the tumour i.e. to reduce or cut off its blood supply, thus controlling its growth and spread.
