Abstract: Background: Isolated regional perfusion is a treatment option mainly for localized metastatic disease. The principle idea is to surgically isolate a region of the body and connect the circulation to a heart-lung machine. A high concentration of a chemotherapeutic agent is then delivered to the tumour, while systemic toxicity is avoided. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate clinical outcome of isolated regional perfusion for extremity and liver metastases of malignant melanoma, investigate asso... more
