Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Isobutyl-2-cyanoacrylate and N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate were used in experimental transcatheter embolization of rat kidneys and in two patients as preoperative embolization of renal carcinoma. The agents produced an efficient and lasting embolization, with no evident complication; however, their usage is difficult and an appropriate dosage is also difficult.
