Table 3 Multivariate logistic analysis for the short term poor therapeutic effect (good vs poor)

From: Hemodynamic changes under balloon occlusion of hepatic artery: predictor of the short-term therapeutic effect of balloon-occluded transcatheter arterial chemolipiodolization using miriplatin for hepatocellular carcinoma

Factors Odds ratio 95 % CI p value
Level of balloon occlusion (segmental/lobar) 3.59 0.53–33.0 0.191
CTHA finding (Group C) 8.34 1.49–68.8 0.015
CT value after B-TACE (HU) 0.38 0.007–15.0 0.608
