Core Tip Aim of this review is to summarize the main characteristics and the clinical results of drug-eluting beads (DEB)-transarterial chemoembolization (TACE). To obviate to the limitations of cTACE, non-absorbable embolic microspheres charged with cytotoxic agents (DEBs) have been developed. DEBs are able to simultaneously exert both the therapeutic components of TACE, either drug-carrier function and embolization. This way, risk of systemic drug release is minimal. However, despite promising results of preliminary studies, clear evidence of superiority of DEB-TACE over cTACE is still lacking. In absence of well-designed randomized-controlled trials, the decision on whether use DEB-TACE or cTACE is still controversial.
