Recommendation ID
IPG488/1
Question
Chemosaturation via percutaneous hepatic artery perfusion and hepatic vein isolation for primary or metastatic liver cancer ('hepatic chemosaturation') should only be performed within the context of research, which may take the form of observational studies.
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Research should document indications for treatment, details of patient selection and details of adjuvant and prior treatments. Outcome measures should include complications, survival and quality of life. Data from welldesigned trials comparing the procedure against other forms of management would be particularly useful, but prospective observational studies may also be of value.
