Current results of pelvic perfusion for non-resectable relapsing of pelvic cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Twenty-eight patients affected by non-resectable pelvic recurrence of a primary pelvic malignant neoplasm were treated by isolated pelvic perfusion, at mean hyperthermia, with different drugs, chosen taking into account tumor chemosensitivity. All patients had been previously treated. Four complete and six partial responses were observed; nine patients had stable disease and four other patients were non-responders and died due to progression in a few months. Two patients were lost to follow-up, one patient died for other reasons and two recent patients are not yet assessable.
