Selective Internal Radiolation Therapy (SIRT):SirSphere/TheraSphere Radioembolization

Selective Internal Radiolation Therapy (SIRT):
SirSphere/TheraSphere Radioembolization

SIR-Sphere and Thera-sphere treatment is a regional treatment to the liver. Unlike chemoembolization, which can cause a significant post-embolization syndrome of pain and nausea and requires at least one night stay in the hospital, SIRT is performed as an outpatient and has almost no side effects. No tumor is resistant to the very high doses of radiation delivered in this fashion. Early studies have shown outcomes rivaling or surpasing chemoembolization. Quality of life can improve and life expectancy may increase. For some patients, treatment with SIR-spheres can cause marked shrinkage of the liver tumor allowing for surgical removal at a later date. This has resulted in a long-term cure for some patients. Radioembolization can be performed concomitantly with systemic therapies. SIRT has begun to replace chemoembolization as the preferred manner to treat primary and secondary tumors of the liver.
