PMID:  14659610     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Peritoneal carcinomatosis should no longer be considered as an automatically terminal disease in abdominal cancer patients. The aim of this comprehensive review of the literature was to evaluate the indications and contraindications of intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy with extensive cytoreduction surgery. Several aspects of the procedure are detailed. Feasibility, short-term and survival results are analysed owing to a comprehensive review of published studies.
