Preoperative tumor embolization of hypervascular primary and secondary neoplasms
Preoperative tumor embolization of hypervascular primary and secondary neoplasms in recent decades has become an important part of the complex treatment of this kind of pathology. The main purpose of conducting this type of endovascular procedures is to reduce intra-operative blood loss, blood transfusion volume and operating time, while achieving more radical tumor resection. The most commonly treated primary hypervascular tumors are meningiomas, hemangioblastomas and juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. Highly vascularised metastases in the spine are also subject to preoperative embolization.
