ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Isolated limb infusion (ILI) is a minimally invasive technique for delivering regional chemotherapy to an extremity for patients with locally advanced cutaneous malignancies and sarcoma. METHODS: A single-institution, prospectively collected database was analyzed for intention-to-treat with ILI. RESULTS: From 2007 to 2016, 163 patients underwent 205 procedures (201 were successfully completed), and four malignancies were treated: melanoma (72.1% of all ILIs), sarcoma (23.4%), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC; 2.0%) and Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC; 2.5%). A median grade II regional Wieberdink toxicity score was observed, with 88.1% of patients experiencing grade II or less. Median follow-up was 21.8 months, and overall response rate (ORR) was 59.0% for melanoma, 48.9% for sarcoma, 50.0% for SCC, and 60.0% for MCC. A significant difference (p = 0.04) between upper (76.9%) and lower extremity (55.1%) ORR was observed in patients with melanoma. When comparing responders with nonresponders, patients with melanoma had significantly longer in-field progression-free survival (IPFS; 14.1 vs. 3.2 months, p < 0.001), distant metastatic-free survival (DMFS; not reached vs. 25.8 months, p = 0.006), and overall survival (OS; 56.0 vs. 26.7 months, p = 0.0004). Sarcoma responders had a significantly longer IPFS (13.0 vs. 2.7 months, p < 0.0001), but no significant distant metastatic or OS advantage. Over a median follow-up of 19.3 months, sarcoma patients had an overall limb salvage rate of 68.4%. CONCLUSION: ILI is a well-tolerated procedure for patients with locally advanced melanoma, sarcoma, and other cutaneous malignancies. ILI responders had a significantly longer time to IPFS, while melanoma responders also had a DMFS and OS advantage.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Metastatic uveal melanoma (UM) carries a poor prognosis; liver is the most frequent and often solitary site of recurrence. Available systemic treatments have not improved outcomes. Melphalan percutaneous hepatic perfusion (M-PHP) allows selective intrahepatic delivery of high dose cytotoxic chemotherapy. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of outcomes data of UM patients receiving M-PHP at two institutions was performed. Tumor response and toxicity were evaluated using RECIST 1.1 and Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v4.03, respectively. RESULTS: A total of 51 patients received 134 M-PHP procedures (median of 2 M-PHPs). 25 (49%) achieved a partial (N = 22, 43.1%) or complete hepatic response (N = 3, 5.9%). In 17 (33.3%) additional patients, the disease stabilized for at least 3 months, for a hepatic disease control rate of 82.4%. After median follow-up of 367 days, median overall progression free (PFS) and hepatic progression free survival (hPFS) was 8.1 and 9.1 months, respectively and median overall survival was 15.3 months. There were no treatment related fatalities. Non-hematologic grade 3-4 events were seen in 19 (37.5%) patients and were mainly coagulopathic (N = 8) and cardiovascular (N = 9). CONCLUSIONS: M-PHP results in durable intrahepatic disease control and can form the basis for an integrated multimodality treatment approach in appropriately selected UM patients.
