CIrse Registry for SIR-Spheres Therapy
CIrse Registry for SIR-Spheres Therapy
Radioembolization is a rapidly growing treatment modality in Europe. Although data on the safety and efficacy of this procedure for the treatment of primary and secondary liver tumours is available, more evidence on the treatment in a clinical setting is necessary. Therefore, CIRSE initiated a registry that enabled robust data collection on the real-life clinical application of SIR-Spheres microspheres: the CIRSE Registry for SIR-Spheres Therapy (CIRT).
The CIRSE Registry for SIR-Spheres Therapy (CIRT) is a European-wide registry that prospectively collected data on SIR-Spheres therapies with the goal to investigate the real-life application of SIR-Spheres microspheres on a multinational scale.
The primary objective was to observe the real-life clinical application of SIRT with SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres and the impact of the treatment in clinical practice. Patients were classified according to the following categories:
In addition to observing the real-life application of CIRT, the Steering Committee is also very interested in data on the safety and effectiveness of the treatment. Furthermore, to observe the palliative aspect of SIRT, a quality of life questionnaire was included in the study.
Quality of life
Data was collected prospectively from medical centres in Europe via an electronic data capture (EDC) system. A certain level of experience with SIR-Spheres was required from participating centres in order to exclude operators that were still in the learning phase of the procedure.
As of December 31, 2019 data collection has been completed. 1,036 patients were included in the study, representing 8 countries and 27 hospitals, of which 1,027 were included in the analysis.
