Microspheres, Embolization, Hyperthermia

Definition : Embolization microspheres designed to locally heat tumors with little warming of the neighboring healthy tissues. These devices typically consist of ferromagnetic ceramic microspheres that raise the temperature of the tumor in the order of 5 degrees C when subjected to an external alternating magnetic field. Hyperthermia embolization microspheres are mostly used for local overheating (i.e., hyperthermia) of cancer tumors with simultaneous embolization of the vasculature nourishing the tumors.

Entry Terms : "Ferromagnetic Microspheres" , "Hyperthermia Microspheres" , "Prostheses, Embolization"
