Abstract

Metastatic hepatic tumours can be treated with hepatic transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE). Common complications associated with TACE include hepatic insufficiency, fever, and pain. However, pulmonary embolism is rarely documented as a fatal adverse effect. We report a case of pulmonary embolism following TACE in a renal cell carcinoma patient with liver metastases. Total recovery is noted after the effective treatment.
