Intra-Arterial Chemotherapy for Pancreatic Cancer
Intra-arterial chemotherapy is an innovative chemotherapy treatment option for pancreatic cancer patients with liver metastasis.
The doctors at Cancer Treatment Centers of America use this highly targeted delivery method to administer chemotherapy directly into tumors in the liver.
First, our doctors use advanced imaging tools to acquire a visual map of the blood vessels. Then, we carefully guide a catheter into the hepatic artery, the main artery that transports blood to the liver. Next, we inject chemotherapy through the catheter, delivering the anti-cancer drugs directly to the liver tumor.
Intra-arterial chemotherapy allows the chemotherapy drugs to be concentrated within the tumor, thereby destroying cancer cells and minimizing exposure to healthy tissues.
