Treatment includes cytoreductive surgery (CRS), peritonectomy and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). This involves removal of the peritoneum, any involved organ and the introduction of heated chemotherapy drug directly into the abdominal cavity. This surgical procedure aims to remove all visible tumours completely with the intention of curing. The chemotherapy treats any microscopic tumour that may be present.
Not all patients with peritoneal disease may be suitable candidates for surgery. All patients that are being considered for the surgery are discussed at our multidisciplinary tumour boards. Surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, specialized radiologists and pathologists will review the cases, any pathology and imaging. The most appropriate treatment plan for each patient is decided as a consensus.
