BACKGROUND Stop-flow perfusion (SFP) has been recently used to enhance the effects of chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced tumors. PATIENTS AND METHODS Over a 2-year period we performed abdominal, pelvic and thoracic SFP in 12 patients with unresectable or metastatic tumors, using balloon catheters inserted into the abdominal aorta and inferior vena cava. Blood flow was occluded and hypoxic extracorporeal perfusion or SFP was performed for advanced diseases. The chemotherapeutic… Expand
