Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the PILP-kit can be safely used, within specific performance parameters, to isolate and perfuse the liver with a chemotherapeutic drug for the treatment of patients with unresectable liver metastases.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Liver Metastases Device: Liver-PILP kit

Detailed Description:

The objective of this Medical Device Study, is to demonstrate the feasibility of the liver PILP intervention.

The liver PILP intervention will be considered feasible if the procedure is demonstrated to be safe and the liver PILP kit performs according to specifications.


Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 6 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: First In-vivo Trial of the Liver Percutaneous Isolated Localized Perfusion (PILP) Set for the Treatment of Liver Metastases
Study Start Date : September 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Liver-PILP kit
Liver-PILP kit
Device: Liver-PILP kit

Device: Liver-PILP kit The Liver-PILP kit (three devices) is composed of percutaneous, disposable (single-use), catheter-based devices for targeted, isolated, organ specific (liver), drug delivery and perfusion with high dose drugs.

  1. The Portal Vein Device (PVD): balloon catheter to occlude the portal vein and allow aspiration through a central lumen for portal veno-venous bypass.
  2. The Hepatic Artery Device (HAD): balloon catheter to occlude arterial flow to the liver.
  3. The Vena Cava Device (VCD): catheter based device to isolate and access hepatic outflow to vena cava by creating a closed chamber in vena cava at ostia of the hepatic veins while maintaining central vena cava blood flow from lower extremities to right atrium through reduced central lumen.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To demonstrate the feasibility of the liver PILP intervention. [ Time Frame: During intervention and up to 30 days post intervention ]
    The liver PILP intervention will be considered feasible if the intervention is demonstrated to be safe and the PILP kit performs according to specifications related to localization, flow rates and retrieval of devices.
