Embolization may often be used to treat internal bleeding and help prevent heavy bleeding during surgery. In some cases, embolization may be a treatment option for difficult-to-reach, inoperable tumors. It may also be used to treat tumors that are too large to be ablated.

Embolization may be used to treat: Liver cancer, Metastatic cancer in the liver, Kidney cancer, Neuroendocrine tumors, Uterine fibroids, Aneurysms. Examples of embolization procedures for liver cancer or other cancers that spread to the liver include chemoembolization and radioembolization therapies (e.g., SIR-Spheres, TheraSphere).
