Abstract

Hepatic arterial infusion pumps are increasingly utilized as an option for liver directed therapy in the treatment of metastatic colorectal carcinoma. After skeletonization of the hepatic artery through the ligation of extra-hepatic branches, these pumps are implanted surgically with their tip placed in the common hepatic artery. Subsequently, a nuclear medicine pump study is performed to ensure homogeneous perfusion of the liver and detect any extrahepatic perfusion. We report a peripheral arc between the superior mesenteric artery and celiac axis, which caused misperfusion on the SPECT nuclear medicine scan.
