Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Peritoneal metastasis is a significant clinical challenge; life expectancy following diagnosis is usually very short. Surgical cytoreduction with HIPEC is being used with increasing frequency in selected patients; most outcome data have shown that prolonged median survivals can be observed in selected patients. This review summarizes the published data related to outcome and quality of life after cytoreduction and HIPEC to provide insights into its use in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis.
