In vivo lung perfusion (IVLP) is an emergent strategy to treat lung metastases because it allows localized delivery of chemotherapy with minimal systemic exposure. Previously, short-term (±30 minutes) IVLP resulted in variable efficacy and significant lung toxicity. We hypothesize that a modified IVLP strategy derived from an ex vivo lung perfusion technique ...
