Abstract: Primary liver malignancy, of which hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common type is the second most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. Given the historically poor prognosis of liver cancer, there has been major research into its treatment options with significant advancements over the last decade. Transarterial Radioembolization (TARE), is a locoregional treatment option for HCC that involves transarterial delivery of the β-emitter Yttrium-90 (90Y) via resin or glass microspheres to arterialised tumor vasculature, delivering a tumoricidal dose to the tumor. The recent 2022 update to the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) treatment algorithm has featured a more prominent role for locoregional treatment including the incorporation of radioembolization in very early (BCLC 0) and early stage (BCLC A) disease. This review will provide a contemporary summary for the evolving role of TARE in HCC treatment, in light of recent and upcoming trials.
