Abstract

In an attempt to avoid toxic reactions of the eye as a complication of internal carotid arterial infusion of cisplatin, carmustine, or a combination of both for the treatment of brain tumors, a new Gore-Tex/Teflon coaxial catheter system has been used for supraclinoid placement. Catheter placement was successful in 14 of 16 attempts in eight patients. Two patients experienced eye pain and conjunctivitis - a result of the chemotherapeutic agent leaking through the Gore-Tex portion of the catheter at the infusion rate of 170 ml/h. No complications were noted as long as the infusion rate was maintained at 125 ml/h or lower.
