‘Isolated limb infusion’ (ILI) has been developed in the 1990s as a minimally invasive alternative to ‘isolated limb perfusion’ (ILP). Both techniques are designed to treat locally advanced melanoma and sarcoma confined to the limb with locally high dose cytotoxic drugs. In this thesis the results of the largest ILI series to date is described. Results following ILI are comparable to those achieved after ILP without the risk of surgical morbidity and complications.
