Four procedures on intraarterial catheter-based therapy are available in treating hepatocellular carcinoma: intraarterial chemotherapy (IAC), transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE), conventional transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (cTACE), and transcatheter arterial chemoembolization using drug-eluting bead (DEB-TACE). On the bases of “2009 Practice Guideline for Diagnosis and Treatment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma” by The Korean Liver Cancer Study Group and National Cancer Center, and “2010 AASLD Practice Guideline” by American Association for the Study of Liver Disease, substances and recommendations on interventional managements were reviewed. Various kinds of embolic materials used in the procedures of TAE, cTACE and DEB-TACE were described in detail.
