By J. D. Howell, H. Gallagher, E. Kane, R. Maguire and C. S. McArdle

Abstract

Over a 12 month period, we prospectively evaluated the use of an ambulatory infusion pump for intra-arterial and intravenous chemotherapy in patients with colorectal liver metastases. In all, 274 separate infusions were given with minor complications occurring on six occasions. Administering treatment on an outpatient basis rather than as an inpatient has resulted in savings of over Pounds 17000 in the first year
