regional perfusion

re·gion·al per·fu·sion

perfusion of part of the body, especially a limb, and particularly with chemotherapeutic agents, for treatment of a malignant tumor, primary, recurrent, or metastatic.

regional perfusion

The intravascular bathing of a specific area of the body–usually an arm or a leg with high dose chemotherapy, to manage CA confined to a region. See Perfusion.
