The embolization was used for the treatment of 10 patients with tumors and vascular lesions in the oral and maxillofacial region. The patients were diagnosed as having vascular deformity, hemangioma, hemangiofibroma and chemodectoma. The selective and superselective target artery embolization were conducted and the satisfactory results were achieved. The procedures, effects and precautions of the embolic therapy were also discussed.
