Abstract

Lung metastases is a major cause of death in cancer patients. A technique of isolated lung perfusion that uses infusions of high doses of local chemotherapy was developed in an attempt to control local disease. This technique prevents systemic side effects. Animal experiments have been encouraging and human trials are pending.
