Plug Embolization of the Right Gastric Artery Using a Transradial Approach

Full Description: 

Aaron M. Fischman, Assistant Professor of Radiology and Surgery, Division of Interventional Radiology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, discusses the case of a 54-year-old male with Hepatitis B and liver cirrhosis. He was subsequently diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the right hepatic lobe. He was not a surgical candidate and it was decided to treat the liver with locoregional therapy using yttrium-90 TheraSpheres. As part of the angiographic mapping study, the right gastric artery was embolized using an Amplatzer 4 device.
