Intra-arterial hepatic chemotherapy for liver cancer

When it comes to treating liver cancer, experts at Goshen Center for Cancer Care use the latest research and tools. To attack the disease head on, we may use intra-arterial hepatic chemotherapy (IAC), which delivers chemotherapy drugs directly into the liver’s main artery. This allows us to minimize exposure of healthy tissues to chemotherapy while maximizing the potential of cancer-fighting drugs on liver cancer.

Also known as hepatic artery infusion, this type of treatment for liver cancer allows for a much higher concentration of the drug – 100 to 1,000 times more concentrated than conventional administration.

As the first comprehensive cancer treatment center in northern Indiana, we offer intra-arterial chemotherapy in Goshen, IN, to provide our communities with leading-edge liver cancer treatment. You can trust our board certified, fellowship trained oncologists to deliver the care you need from diagnosis to treatment to recovery.

Getting hepatic artery infusion at Goshen Center for Cancer Care

Trained oncology surgeons implant the hepatic pump within the abdominal wall through minimally invasive surgery. The refillable pump delivers the chemotherapy precisely to the liver. For some patients, we leave the pump implanted indefinitely and provide routine maintenance at our outpatient facility.

Life after intra-arterial hepatic chemotherapy

IAC can improve chances of survival for people with primary liver cancer or cancer that has spread to the liver. After undergoing this procedure, you may enjoy a better quality of life with fewer troubling symptoms than before.
