The Beauty and Bane of Pressure-Directed Embolotherapy: Hemodynamic Principles and Preliminary Clinical Evidence

Steven C Rose et al. AJR Am J Roentgenol. .

Abstract

Objective: Particulate emboli are passive agents that follow blood flow. Deployed antireflux devices obstruct blood flow.

Conclusion: The aim of this review is to describe the complex hemodynamic alterations to blood flow caused by the deployment of antireflux devices and the resulting changes to embolic distribution. The therapeutic goal is optimization of embolization safety and efficacy.

Keywords: antireflux devices; embolic distribution; hemodynamic alterations; particulate emboli; temporary balloon occlusion; transarterial chemoembolization; transarterial radioembolization.
