Interventional therapy is a mini-invasive therapy performed under the guidance of medical imaging equipments. With a 1-2 millimeter incision, paracentesis could be performed with the lead of medical imaging equipment. Then a special tube, catheter or other sophisticated apparatus are introduced into human body to inhibit the growth and spread of cancer cells, so as to cut off the tumor’s blood supply and reach the effect of local chemotherapy without any toxic side effects of chemotherapy. Interventional therapy has the advantages of little pain, high efficacy and few toxic side effects.
Biological natural therapy can not only kill cancer cells, remove the residual disease, prevent the recurrence and metastasis of tumor, but also restore and rebuild patients’ immune system and inhibit the growth of human cancer cells.
