SuperSelective Chemotherapy Prevents Enucleation

August 23, 2010

Administering chemotherapy by cannulating the ophthalmic artery in patients with retinoblastoma was very effective in resolving these tumors in children and prevented enucleation in 27/28 cases. No complications! The procedure was safely repeated up to six times. The cannulation was performed under fluoroscopic control, and this method avoids all the side effects of chemo.
