Chemoembolization attacks tumors in two ways. First, a surgeon partially blocks the blood vessel feeding a tumor to cut off the tumor's nourishment. Then, chemotherapy drugs are injected or deposited into that blood vessel near the tumor. Chemoembolization can be very effective at aiming chemotherapy at a tumor. At Vanderbilt-Ingram, we use chemoembolization to treat cancers confined to the liver.
