Vessel occlusion with transcatheter electrocoagulation: initial clinical experience.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Transcatheter electrocoagulation (TCEC) was used for vessel occlusion in combination with embolization by Gelfoam and/or Ivalon in six patients in whom other interventional or surgical techniques were considered dangerous or unfeasible. The technique was effective in decreasing or obliterating the blood supply to variously located lesions in all cases. The only complications were small skin burns in one patient and a small ulceration of the upper lip in another.
