Abstract

OBJECTIVE. This retrospective review details our experience with isolated limb infusion for the treatment of melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and sarcoma in-transit metastases performed entirely in the interventional radiology suite. Eleven patients were treated over a 3-year period. Treatment response was assessed clinically and with PET/CT. CONCLUSION. Eight patients had either complete or partial response, giving an overall response rate of 72%. Isolated limb infusion can efficiently be performed entirely in the interventional radiology suite.
