Background and aim: The objective of this study was to describe the overall survival (OS) with transarterial radioembolization (TARE) for patients with colorectal adenocarcinoma liver metastases (CRLM) treated at an academic center with a dedicated multidisciplinary liver tumor board (MTB).
Methods: Single institution retrospective study of consecutive patients with CRLM undergoing TARE with mainly Y90 resin spheres between 01/2016-07/2020.
Results: Fifty-five patients were included. Median age was 60 years (range 36-84), 61.8% were female, ECOG 0-1= 90.9%. The median time from diagnosis to first TARE was 16.4 months (1.7-95.6) and 36.4% were treated within the first 12 months of diagnosis. With a median follow-up of at least two years, the median OS from the date of diagnosis and first TARE was 43.2 months (29.5-68.7) and 16.7 months (9.9-35.2), respectively.
Conclusions: The observed OS in this cohort compares favorably to OS reported in contemporary phase 3 trials and might indicate a benefit of TARE with appropriate patient selection at experienced centers with dedicated MTB.
Relevance for Patients: Oncologists treating patients with CRLM should consider referral to a tertiary treatment center with a multidisciplinary team and TARE treatment expertise.
