Topic: Therasphere - too many veins / arteries
My father was told he was not a canadate for Theresphere due to the amount of veins - arteries leaving the liver ( Mayo M.N. ) . I guess these radioative spheres just float on thru to the lungs etc.. and due more damage to the other organs.
Has anyone heard of a doctor plugging or blocking these extra exits from the liver? The reason I ask is if not all people have the extra veins leaving the liver then why can't they be plugged to prevent the spheres from lodging other places?
