We developed a new technique of superselective intra-arterial chemotherapy for tongue cancer using a modified (1.35 mm) angiographic catheter. The catheter was confirmed to be inserted into the lingual artery by the new technique. We measured the platinum concentrations in resected tumour tissues after infusion of carboplatin (CBDCA) at 20 mg/m2 over 30 min from 30 min before tumour resection in 12 patients with cancer of the tongue (6 patients: superselective intra-arterial infusion; 6… CONTINUE READING
