Intraarterial hepatic adjuvant chemotherapy after radical hepatic resection for liver metastases from colorectal carcinoma lowers the rate of liver disease relapse. The technique for catheter implantation in the right hepatic artery for subsequent intraarterial hepatic adjuvant chemotherapy after right hepatectomy is herein described and recommended as an effective alternative approach to the standard catheter implantation in the gastroduodenal artery in cases of hepatectomies for liver metastases from colorectal cancer.
