Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy in Nongynecologic Cancers

Part of the Current Clinical Oncology book series (CCO)


Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) + hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has had a significant impact in the management of peritoneal surface malignancies of nongynecologic origin. It has improved the quality and quantity of life for these patients. Evidence of improved median survival has been observed independent of the origin of the carcinomatosis, and this treatment paradigm resulted in measurable 5-yr survival in diseases where it did not exist before the use of CRS + HIPEC.
