Figure 1: A 35-year-old male patient was diagnosed as hepatocellular carcinoma recurrence with peritoneal metastases 6 months after hepatectomy. (a) Abdominal computed tomography scan shows peritoneal metastases in the right lower abdominal cavity. (b) Superselective angiography of superior mesenteric artery branch shows that this branch feeds the peritoneal metastases. (c) Superselectively catheterized with a 2.7 Fr microcatheter of the superior mesenteric artery branch, which feeds the metastases, is treated with 4 ml lipiodol. (d) Follow-up computed tomography image shows lipiodol deposition in the peritoneal metastases
