Register With Patients in Which Hyperthermic Intra-Peritoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) Was Performed

Published: June 22, 2012

Detailed Description:

To register the follow-up data of patients who, because of a peritoneal surface malignancy, will undergo cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC. In this surgical intervention, the abdominal cavity is macroscopically cleared of tumor, by removing all visible tumor nodules, and is subsequently rinsed with hyperthermic (heated) chemotherapy, aiming to destroy all residual invisible tumor cells that might have stayed behind after the debulking.

The eventual aim of this procedure is to improve the prognosis/survival of patients with malignancies localized on the peritoneal surface.

Eligibility Criteria

Study Population Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis of colorectal origin, patients with pseudomyxoma peritonei (type DPAM or PMCA) and patients with peritoneal mesothelioma who are planned to undergo cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC because of a peritoneal surface malignancy
