Abstract

The treatment of accidental extravasation of anthracycline-based chemotherapy has markedly improved with the recent introduction of a systemic antidote, Savene. However, efficacy data on this treatment is mainly based on extravasation from peripheral catheters. This review presents data on 7 cases of Savene treatment of anthracycline extravasations from central venous catheters.
