Hepatic Artery Chemotherapy in the Management of Colorectal Metastases (Clinical Report)

Each year in the USA, approximately 200,000 people are diagnosed with primary colorectal cancer; 75,000 patients with colorectal cancer do not survive, and half of those who survive develop tumor recurrence. Sixty percent of recurrences are found in the liver, 10% of which will be resectable. Patients at high risk of developing metastases from colorectal cancer are those with T3 lesions, node-positive disease, a rectal vs colonic primary tumor, and vascular invasion determined by pathologic examination. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network has different patient surveillance guidelines for node-positive patients and node-negative patients. For node-positive patients, the guidelines recommend a carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level every 3 months and a computed tomography (CT) scan initially and annually thereafter. For node-negative patients, the guidelines recommend a CEA level every 6 months and a CT scan at 1 and 2 years (1). In 1976, Wood et al reviewed the natural history of unresected colorectal liver metastases (2). Patients with a solitary liver lesion could expect to have a 1-year survival rate of 60%. If disease was disseminated, survival drastically declined to 6% at 1 year. Overall, for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, the median survival was 6 to 12 months.
