Bland Embolization

Embolization is performed to cut off or disrupt the blood supply in order to shrink or kill a tumor. A Bland Embolization treatment is a form of targeted therapy utilized to treat liver cancer tumors. Microscopic particles – with no chemotherapy or radioactivity – are injected through a catheter directly into the arteries that feed the tumor in order to starve the tumor that will shrink or kill it.

Success rates vary widely depending on the type of cancer treated and the type of embolization performed.
