Transient Repeated Dearterialization Combined with Intra-Arterial Infusion of Oncolytic Drugs in the Treatment of Liver Tumors
After to the lymph nodes, the liver is the organ of the body which is most frequently the site of malignant growth. Using international data on cancer incidence, it can be calculated that there are roughly 200–250 thousand new cases of cancer diagnosed each year in the Federal Republic of Germany. Roughly 50,000 of these will sooner or later develop liver metastases. Approximately every 20th such patient will die of liver tumors.
