Case 524

Palliative embolization of an inoperable renal tumor

Author(s)
D.Vorwerk
 
Patient
female, 77 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Hypervascularized malignant tumor of right kidney.

    Angiography reveals hypervascularized tumor mass of the right kidney. Coil embolization had been attempted three years earlier but was unscuccessful. Multiple coils are seen within renal arteries

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Hypervascularized malignant tumor of right kidney.;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Combined peripheral and central renal embolization
     

    After administering one vial of PVA particles via a 4 F catheter inserted through a 6 F guiding catheter in a coaxial fashion, peripheral tumor arteries are no longer visible and flow is dimished indicating sufficient...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Combined peripheral and central renal embolization;

    After addiotonal central glue embolization performed by a mixture of bucrylate and lipiodol, the ranal artery is completely blocked

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Combined peripheral and central renal embolization;

    Nonsubtracted image shows the radiopaque glue within the renal artery
