Abstract

Hepatic dearterialization by ligation of the main hepatic artery followed by local intraarterial chemotherapy was performed in 24 patients with clinically isolated but unresectable hepatic metastasis after local resection of carcinoma of the colon. Computed tomography of the abdomen and laboratory parameters were used both to stage and follow-up these patients. Computed tomography changes following dearterialization and chemotherapy of the liver are described. Computed tomography is a valuable technique for both staging and follow-up this group of patients.
