System of PIHP: The specially designed 4-lumen/2-balloon catheter was introduced into the retrohepatic inferior vena cava through the femoral vein. The hepatic effluent was isolated by balloon inflation and pumped to charcoal filters via the fenestrations of one major catheter lumen. The filtered blood was returned straight to the right atrium through the other major lumen with an opening at the distal tip of the catheter. The patient received a 30-min continuous HAI of 100 mg/m2 doxorubicin plus 30 mg/m2 mitomycin C. At the end of HAI, extracorporeal drug filtration was maintained at least for 10 min, and the 4-lumen/2-balloon catheter was removed
