Intraarterial management of giant-cell tumors of the spine in children
Transcatheter arterial management of giant cell tumors of the spine was performed in two female patients aged 12 and 15 who had failed to respond to conventional therapy. Response was determined clinically by alleviation of pain and radiographically by regression and/or calcification of the tumor. Minor side effects included transient nausea, elevated body temperature, and pain.
