Abstract

A 42-year-old male developed pain in the right gluteal region due to local recurrence after curative resection of advanced lower rectal cancer. Radiotherapy (60 Gy) was performed, but satisfactory results were not obtained. Therefore, a reservoir was placed lowing cannulation of the internal iliac artery. The chemotherapy, in addition to intravenous administration of low dose CDDP (20 mg), included local intraarterial infusion therapy with 5-FU (1,500 mg/5 hour) once per week. After 10 courses of this chemotherapy (total dose: CDDP, 200 mg; 5-FU, 15,000 mg), the pain decreased, and the tumor size was reduced without side effects, improving the patient's QOL. At present, multidisciplinary treatments including such chemotherapy and radiotherapy is performed for local recurrence of rectal cancer, but adequate results are often not obtained. Local intraarterial infusion chemotherapy via the internal iliac artery accompanied by changes in blood flow can be safely performed on an outpatient basis, and appears to be effective for local recurrence of rectal cancer.
