In patients with poor liver function (Child-Pugh B), we only performed super-selected TACE without gelatin sponge particles to aid embolization, which is similar to TACE as a supplement therapy after surgical resection of HCC. Moreover, the blood examination indicators of patients with lipiodol injected into the proper hepatic artery had no significant changes in liver function after 1 month, which demonstrates that it will not cause damage to the patients despite the diffuse distribution of iodized oil
in the liver.
A contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen showed iodized oil
and intraperitoneal free air with a rupture of the HCC in segment II into the peritoneal cavity adjacent to the gastric wall (Figure 1).
* Study group A (TACE + microwave ablation, n=10): mitomycin C (0.1 mg) + iodized oil
(0.1 mL) + degradable starch microspheres (5.0 mg) on day 13 and microwave ablation (2450 MHz, 35 W, 45 s) on day 16.

These include iodized salt, iodized oil
injection, iodized oil
capsules (oral), and iodization of drinking water (1).
supplements may be periodically administered in remote areas where salt iodization is not feasible, possibly a single oral dose at the time of oral polio vaccine.
