Monocomponent chemoembolization in oral and oropharyngeal cancer using an aqueous crystal suspension of cisplatin.

Kovács AF, Obitz P, Wagner M - Br. J. Cancer (2002)

Bottom Line: Systemic side-effects were very low (grade I WHO) in both groups.Side-effects were found to be similar to post-embolization syndrome (swelling, mild to moderate pain, leucocytosis without fever) in the study group.Chemoembolization in the head and neck area can be carried out routinely using this method.
