Ann Intern Med ; As a result, the regimens of IPC administration vary amongst institutions for both gastric and ovarian cancers. InLygidakis et al. Some studies even suggest a better outcome for laparoscopically resected primary colon cancer.

Either it is fast-growing, or it is not. The 5-year survival rate in surgical series reported by Dr. His mantra, “It’s what the surgeon doesn’t see that kills the patient,” summarizes his thinking as he realizes the limitations of surgery alone, and the limitations of systemic or regional chemotherapy alone.

Colorectal PM are often considered as one disease, regardless of their colon or rectal origin.

Melphalan has been recommended only for use using a closed technique. The same situation is likely to exist with mitomycin C. This article briefly outlines the history of CRS and HIPEC, highlighting some of the significant events in its development from inception to the present day.

Safety monitoring of the coliseum technique for heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy with mitomycin C.

According to available literature, especially extent of peritoneal disease, completeness of cytoreduction, and signet ring cell histology have great influence on the outcome after CRS and HIPEC.


Prophylactic and therapeutic continuous hyperthermic peritoneal perfusion for peritoneal metastases of gastric cancer. Suppl Tumori ; 2: Laparoscopic staging of peritoneal surface malignancies. In this review, the methodology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of IPC, and the benefits and risks associated with each technique are discussed.

I personally have not seen any successes. A more viable application of laparoscopic HIPEC concerns the patients without synchronous peritoneal metastases but at high risk of developing them in the postoperative months after the resection of the primary tumor. Complete cytoreductive surgery plus intraperitoneal chemohypethermia with oxaliplatin for peritoneal carcinomatosis of hhipec origin.

Elias D, Dekkal M. The Dutch surgical colorectal audit.

Commercially available table-mounted retractors In order to perform the open technique, the skin edges are elevated on the frame of a retractor that is mounted to sugarbqker operating table. An abundance of evidence exists to support that hyperthermia has a direct anti-tumour effect by enhancing the cellular uptake of cytotoxic drugs, increasing membrane permeability and membrane transport [ 42 ].
