Intra-arterial Therapies

Intra-arterial therapies are treatments that are delivered to the liver tumor using a catheter. Most intra-arterial therapies are administered by threading a catheter from an artery in your groin directly up into your liver. Your physician places the catheter directly into the blood vessel that is “feeding” the tumor. Intra-arterial treatment delivers a therapy that kills the tumor directly but does not subject your whole body to adverse side effects.

Types of intra-arterial liver treatments include:

A, B, Hepatic artery chemoembolization; A, with corresponding angiogram.
