With intraarterial infusion, high levels of chemotherapeutic agents can be achieved in the tumoral area.
We present our experience with open-ended guidewire (OEGW) associated with steerable guidewires (SGW) as superselective catheters for intraarterial chemotherapeutic infusion and embolization.
This technique was used successfully in 62 patients (190 procedures) over 15 months.
