|Brief Title||Yttrium Y 90 Radiolabeled Glass Beads in Treating Patients With Liver Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery|
RATIONALE: Internal radiation therapy uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Using radiolabeled glass beads to kill tumor cells may be effective treatment for liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.
PURPOSE: To provide expanded access and study the side effects of yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres in treating patients with liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.
OUTLINE: This is a humanitarian device exemption use study.
Patients receive yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres (TheraSphere®) via percutaneous hepatic arterial infusion. Patients may be retreated between 30-90 days after the initial infusion.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed for 30 days and then annually thereafter for up to 2 years.
