Description

UPDATE ON INTERVENTIONAL ONCOLOGY Non-resectable and metastatic tumors present a difficult challenge for veterinarians and pet owners. The relatively limited efficacy of intravenous chemotherapy for macroscopic disease, and the cost, morbidity, and tumor resistance associated with radiation therapy have stimulated the search for additional therapeutic options. Similar difficulties in human oncology have inspired various creative, image-guided, regional tumor therapies in the continuously developing subspecialty of interventional oncology (IO). These techniques are particularly useful in cases of regional disease in order to maximize local therapy and minimize systemic toxicity. While results have been variable, regional techniques such as percutaneous tumor ablation, intra-arterial chemotherapy, transcatheter arterial embolization/chemoembolization, and/or palliative stenting have been demonstrated to improve survival times, disease-free intervals, recurrence rates, or completeness of tumor necrosis.
