The IsoFlow catheter is a new treatment device which has just received FDA approval as a Class II medical device, and is available by prescription. The catheter is inserted into the artery where the tumor is located, and after the dual-balloon design feature of the catheter is inflated, the blood supply from that artery to the tumor is cut off without impeding the normal flow of blood through the artery. The catheter allows for the targeted delivery via sideways perfusion of the indicated chemotherapy medication, which is a unique capability that allows injection into areas where physicians were previously unable to treat directly using pressure. By utilizing this approach to fluid delivery, you can increase drug concentrations at targeted sites while reducing systemic exposure, thereby improving efficacy and patient outcomes, with the added benefit of allowing the patient to focus on fighting the cancer, and not the negative side effects of chemotherapy.
