PURPOSE: To evaluate the usefulness of selective computed tomography (CT) angiography in preventing severe complications, such as spinal cord injury and broncho- esophageal fistula, during the transcatheter arterial embolization or infusion chemotherapy for thoracic diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data from 28 patients with thoracic diseases were retrospectively analyzed in terms of selective CT angiography procedures carried out before transcatheter arterial embolization or transcatheter arterial infusion chemotherapy. RESULTS: There were no spinal cord injuries (0/13 and 0/15) or broncho-esophageal fistula developments (0/13 and 0/15) during transcatheter arterial embolization and transcatheter arterial infusion chemotherapy, respectively. CONCLUSION: We conclude that selective CT angiography is potentially useful for reducing the incidence of severe complications during transcatheter arterial embolization or infusion chemotherapy for thoracic diseases.
