Does anyone know anything about this procedure? My spouse's tumor abuts the celiac artery, currently unresectiable to borderline unresectible. After 8 rounds of chemo the tumor has reduced from 4.2cm x 2.8cm to 2.2cm x 1.8cm and his CA19-9 reduced from 2234 to 45. There is gene mutation involvement which is a contributor. Monday he starts 28 days of radiation plus two additional types of chemo at the same time.
