Semin Intervent Radiol. 2011 Jun;28(2):142-6. doi: 10.1055/s-0031-1280652.


Interventional radiologists are frequently encountering patients with colorectal cancer that are being treated with bevacizumab. This therapeutic agent is associated with a potentially increased risk of adverse events when invasive procedures are performed while patients are on therapy. The current case report reviews a complication related to planning angiography for radioembolization with Yttrium-90 microspheres in an individual on bevacizumab and subsequent management of the patient.
