Preoperative Embolization of Hypervascular Head and Neck Tumors to Improve Surgical Outcomes

Complete Title: Super-Selective Intra-arterial Embolization of Hypervascular Head and Neck Tumors
Trial Phase: I
Investigator: Melanie Walker

This phase I trial tests whether embolization done prior to surgery (preoperative) will improve surgical outcomes in head and neck tumors with large amounts of blood vessels (hypervascular). Embolization is a minimally invasive surgical technique performed under angiographic (imaging of blood vessels) guidance. Embolization therapy injects tiny particles into the arteries feeding tumors to cut off their blood supply which may help improve outcomes by preventing blood loss during surgery, reducing surgical times, and shrinking tumors or reducing recurrence.
