Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Adrenal arterial embolization with absolute ethanol was performed for the treatment of Cushing's syndrome. A 55-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with complaints of obesity, hypertension, and back pain caused by left adrenal hyperplasia after surgical resection of the right adrenal gland. Therapeutic adrenal arterial embolization was performed by the coaxial technique using absolute ethanol (AE) as an embolic material. No severe complications were encountered during the procedure, and the patient was discharged without symptoms or abnormalities on laboratory tests.
