On September 7, 2012, the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada (CCAC) hosted a highly successful Advisory Council Meeting focused on Hepatic Arterial Infusion (HAI) in the Management of Unresectable Colorectal Liver Metastases at the Marriott Eaton Centre Hotel in Toronto.

In attendance were hepatobiliary surgical and medical oncologists from across Canada and the U.S. These experts, including Dr. Nancy Kemeny, came together to identify barriers, document and advance solutions with the aim of introducing and promoting the use of HAI in Canada to improve the experience and outcomes of the colorectal cancer patient with confined, unresectable metastatic disease to the liver.

The expert panel reached consensus on all proposed statements focusing on the various aspects of HAI in the management of colorectal liver metastases and a meeting manuscript is forthcoming. The manuscript will ultimately be submitted for publication in a prominent Journal and utilized for the promotion of HAI in appropriate circumstances in Canada.

Stay tuned as the CCAC continues to advocate for education and awareness of HAI as a therapeutic option in the treatment of unresectable colorectal liver metastases as well as assist in the introduction of HAI in Canada.
