Isolated limb perfusion (ILP) with cytotoxic agents is a remarkably effective but complex technique used to treat locally recurrent and metastatic melanoma confined to a limb. Isolated limb infusion (ILI), essentially a low-flow ILP performed without oxygenation via percutaneous catheters, has been developed as a simpler alternative. The outcome in 135 patients treated by ILI was reviewed. The overall response rate in the treated limb was 85% (complete response [CR] rate 41%, partial response… CONTINUE READING
