Chief Complaint: Hepatic Metastasis

History of Present Illness: Mr. Schuttler is a 45 y.o. Caucasian male here today with presumed hepatic colorectal metastasis at the request of Dr. Shah for evaluation of radioembolization.

Oncology History: Mr. Schuttler underwent a colonoscopy on 9/24/15 which showed a 6 mm polyp in the rectum and a fungating partially obstructing large mass was found at the distal sigmoid. Pathology came back as Adenocarcinoma. CT demonstrated multiple hepatic masses. He underwent neoadjuvant chemotherapy most recently FOLFOX +avastin; see oncology notes for compete details. Most recent imaging demonstrates decreased size of hepatic lesions but still multiple lesions in the bilateral liver consistent with metastatic disease. At the most recent hepatobiliary multidisciplinary conference, patient was recommended for consideration of locoregional therapy, specifically radioembolization.

Mr. Schuttler feels well today. He denies abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, SOB, chest pain or other symptoms. Fatigue and appetite are improved since stopping chemotherapy. He still notes some neuropathy related to chemotherapy treatments.

Imaging: MR 4/4/2016 reviewed

Assessment: Mr. Schuttler is a 45 yo with metastatic disease to the liver. He is a good candidate for radioembolization based on his good baseline liver function and functional status. Dr. Paul Suhocki had a lengthy discussion regarding the risks, benefits and alternatives to radioembolization. The patient was given the opportunity to ask questions and to have those questions answered to his satisfaction

Plan:
Plan for radioembolization to be scheduled in the next few weeks. Most of the the patient’s lab values are current but we will redraw an INR in clinic today.

I personally interviewed the patient with a fellow.

  1. just googled “radioembolization” and I must say it sounds far out. From what I can tell, your doctors seem to know what they’re doing. 😉
