Intra Cavitary Chemotherapy
Intracavitary chemotherapy involves the injecting of chemotherapy through a tube (catheter), directly into a body cavity. It gives a very high dose of chemotherapy to the tumour, but only a very low dose to the rest of the body. Intracavitary chemotherapy can be injected into the bladder – intravesical, the abdominal cavity – intra peritoneal, or the chest cavity – intrapleural.
