Hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAIC) is a treatment used for isolated liver metastases (LM), mainly of colorectal cancer (CRC) origin. Because of its technical conditions, it is used in only few experienced centers in France. Our aim was to evaluate its feasibility, efficacy and tolerance in 4 centers which have recently developed HAIC.
