[Intra-arterial infusion chemotherapy for recurrent cervical lymph nodes after surgery in esophageal cancer].

Abstract

We attempted intra-arterial infusion chemotherapy using a reservoir system in recurrent cervical lymph nodes after surgery for esophageal cancer, and obtained favorable results. Intra-arterial infusion chemotherapy (75 mg of cisplatin and 5 mg of peplomycin) was performed using a reservoir system connected with a catheter inserted into the left subclavian artery, because recurrent lymph nodes developed in the left supraclavicular fossa. The therapy was effective for 6 months and the quality of life was improved without side effects.
