Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review


Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is included among the wide therapeutic tools for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), tumour with high frequency and malignancy. The approach is invasive and, beyond the discomfort for the patient, it is charged by a number of side effects and complications. In this study we report the case of renal acute failure of hypovolemic origin, as a consequence of a TACE in a patient suffering from HCC, occurred after one week of intervention. The different possible mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of this complication are discussed.
