An option for my mum with soft tissue sarcoma in the arm is isolated limb perfusion (IPL) -
a treatment in which the blood circulation of the extremity is isolated. Local treatment with chemotherapy is applied in the isolated vessels by means of a heart-lung machine.
Has anyone had this type of treatment before? It is difficult to find information on it being done in Australia. Mum would need to have it done in Melbourne.
Thanks in advance, Sonya
