Summary

This study aims to investigate the safety and effectiveness of the Instylla Hydrogel Embolic System (HES) compared to the standard of care TAE/cTACE to treat a tumor by reducing or completely closing off the arterial blood supply to the tumor. The Instylla HES is an experimental treatment. Subjects will be evaluated for 180 days following the embolization procedure. At each visit, subjects will be asked to complete at least one quality of life questionnaire, undergo a physical assessment (vitals only), blood test to check blood cell levels, and follow-up tumor imaging. Throughout the duration of the study, subjects will be evaluated for complications or side effects that may be related to the procedure and/or Instylla HES device. This study will be conducted at up to 20 sites in the U.S. with additional sites outside of the U.S. It is anticipated that the full investigation will take approximately 2 years.
