Abstract

Radioembolization has become a more prevalent treatment for both primary and secondary liver of the liver. Radioembolization is a relatively safe procedure with major complications being rare. Understanding how to identify the potential complications and their treatment can help make the procedure even safer and mitigate the risk of severe life threatening complications. In this article, we will review the most common complications, how to identify them, and how manage them.
