We analyze the impact on the post-operative syndrome of application of Yashiro and RH catheters to TACE. We analyze the superselective success rate of Yashiro and RH catheters in terms of hours and epiphenomenon and the impact on the post-operative syndrome of application of both of these catheters using blood test, objective indices. The superselection was successful 45 times using Yashiro catheter and the success rate was 93.75%, and 41 times using RH catheter, and the success rate 78.84%. The average time until the superselection was 347.39±29.44(s) in Yashiro catheter and 652.97±203.36(s) in RH catheter. And there were 6 cases (16.6%) of the prolongation of the operating time due to vascular spasm in RH catheter group. In Yashiro catheter group the moderate increase of transaminase and ESR was observed 7 days after operation, then it returned to the baseline on 14th day. But in RH catheter group the severe increase of these indices was observed 7 days after operation, and then it has been decreasing gradually on 14th day.(p<0.05). Our study suggests that TACE using Yashiro catheter is relatively safe approach in terms of postoperative syndrome, because it increases success rate of superselection and reduces the overall operating time.
