Topic: Chemoembolization / TACE - outcome and stats?
My wife (Whipple 2011 for CC, post-adjuvant chemo, chemoradiotherapy for recurrence, and now recurrence in retroperitoneum) has just started transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), plus systemic Xeloda, with Prof Thomas Vogl in Frankfurt.
We're short on outcome data, survival stats and academic papers besides a 2011 study (Int. J. Cancer: 131 733-740, lead author Prof Vogl) on TACE in the treatment of patients with unresectable CC; not exactly my wife's case, but relevant.
Researching PubMed and Google Scholar produces numerous studies on TACE for liver involvement, but only the above paper for extrahepatic CC.
Could anyone direct us to published TACE research more relevant to my wife's case? Or institutions specialising in TACE for CC?
Contact with any of Prof Vogl's other patients, past or present, would also be appreciated.
