A potential complication of chemotherapy is vesicant cytotoxic extravasation, such as cisplatin, which may affect the quality of life of patients. Therefore, fast acting and active treatment are essential.
The aim of this study was to develop an algorithm for management of extravasation of cisplatin.
A literature review was.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
