A 53-year-old male underwent conventional transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) (using a combination of doxorubicin, lipiodol, and gelfoam) twice for treatment of multiple hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) at our institution. Several tumors were located in the right lobe of the liver. His past medical history was significant and included lung and gastric cancer. He had undergone left lower lung lobectomy to treat a non-small cell lung cancer 4 years prior and subtotal gastrectomy with gastro-jejunostomy (the Billroth II operation) to treat advanced gastric cancer 3 years prior.
