Y-90 radioembolization for HCC patients with PVT appears to have an acceptable safety profile, with better survival in CP-A patients than in CP-B patients. This study confirms prior reports of survival in PVT patients treated with Y-90 radioembolization, and survival after Y-90 radioembolization appears to exceed that in
similar patients treated with systemic therapies. Despite the negative studies recently reported, Y-90 radioembolization is a reasonable treatment option in properly selected PVT patients. Further controlled studies are needed to compare it with systemic therapies or other locoregional treatments for advanced-stage HCC.
