The method of killing liver cancer cells with pain-free radioactive microspheres, vomiting, prolonged fever and the patient was discharged only after 1 to 2 days of treatment.
At the symposium “Application of selective radiotherapy (SIRT) to treat liver cancer, clinical biochemistry and molecular biology” held at Hospital Military Hospital 175 (Ministry of Defense) ), on the morning of May 25, doctors (BS) of Military Hospital 175 had surgery to treat 2 cases of liver cancer by injecting radioactive microspheres directly into arteries that feed liver tumors.
The BV Military Medical Doctor 175 is treated with new methods
Radioactive microspheres will enter the small arterial branches throughout the tumor causing embolism, cutting the nutrient source for the tumor … Accordingly, the tumor will be affected by two embolism and radiation therapy. in. Therefore, the therapeutic effect will increase while side effects and unwanted complications will be low. The microspheres emitted will destroy cancer cells without affecting the surrounding areas.
According to Dr.-Doctor Dao Duc Tien, Department of Medicine and Pharmacy 175’s Department of Internal Medicine, this is a new technique applied in HCMC. In the North, this technique was first deployed at 108 Military Central Hospital.

In the north, this technique was first deployed at 108 Military Central Hospital.
Dr. Tien also informed that radiotherapy techniques for liver cancer treatment require the intervention of many departments such as nuclear medicine, internal digestion, anesthesia for resuscitation … to correct exactly radioactive isotopes source location for liver cancer. This method opens up new opportunities for patients who have been treated by other cancer methods such as the chemical button TACE or have no indication of traditional embolization treatment.
In particular, the method of killing liver cancer cells with radioactive microspheres, vomiting, fever lasts many days for patients as other treatments. The patient was discharged after only 1 to 2 days of treatment.
