Abstract

The present pilot study was conducted to investigate the clinical efficacy of super high-dose intraarterial cisplatin infusion with percutaneous pelvic perfusion under extracorporeal chemofiltration (PPPEC) for locally advanced uterine cervical carcinoma. Cisplatin (140-240 mg/m2) was infused in uterine arteries in a neoadjuvant setting in 20 patients under the PPPEC system twice during a 2-week interval. Fourteen of 17 patients in whom reduction of the disease (tumor downstaging) was confirmed underwent radical surgery. Despite the tumor downstaging, the remaining three patients had poor PS and the other three showed insufficient stage regression. Clinical responses, histologic responses, and surgical review were studied. The rate of overall tumor response (complete response plus partial response), tumor downstaging, overall histologic response, and radical surgery performance after the second course of PPPEC were 95.0%, 85.0%, 95.0%, and 70.0%, respectively. Curative surgery, defined as negative carcinoma cells in surgical margins, was achieved in 85.7% of the cases, whereas the rate of complete surgery defined as negative carcinoma cells both in surgical margins and regional lymph nodes was 42.9%. With 42 months of median fo...Continue Reading
