Background: hepatic hemangiomas, primarily affecting adults in their fourth and fifth decades, are common benign mesenchymal hepatic tumors. The management of giant hepatic hemangiomas, defined variably as greater than 4 cm to 10 cm in diameter, is a clinical challenge due to their potential size and associated symptoms. This study compares two minimally invasive treatment methods: trans-catheter arterial bleomycin chemoembolization (TACE) and ultrasound and fluoroscopy-guided transhepatic bleomycin sclerotherapy (PLIB), in the treatment of giant hepatic hemangiom....[more]

Background: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major global health concern, particularly in developing countries. Trans-catheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a widely accepted nonsurgical treatment for unresectable HCC, but it is often accompanied by postembolization syndrome (PES), characterized by fever, nausea, and abdominal pain. This study aims to investigate the factors influencing the development of PES in TACE-treated patients.

Methods: This prospective cohort study included 51 patients with histologically confirmed HCC un....[more]
