Cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy combined with liver resection for concurrent peritoneal and hepatic metastases of gastrointestinal and gynecological primary tumors

ConclusionSimultaneous resection of hepatic and peritoneal metastases seems to provide a survival benefit for selected patients and is associated with acceptable morbidity and mortality rates. Knowledge of patients and operative factors linked to morbidity will help to provide a strict selection process and a safer surgical procedure.

Patients with peritoneal mesothelioma undergoing a second cytoreductive surgery had a median survival of 92 months, according to a recent study at St. George Hospital and the University of South Wales in Sydney, Australia. That same group of patients also had a five-year survival rate of 71.8%, further illustrating the progress being made in treating the peritoneal subtype of this rare and aggressive cancer. The Journal of Surgical Oncology published the study in July 2019. The single-center study detailed the survival benefits of cytoreduction and perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy in colorectal, ovarian, appendic...

ConclusionsPathological evaluation provides a more accurate and objective assessment of extent and distribution of peritoneal disease. Lymph node involvement in relation of peritoneal disease is common. The morphological presentation of PM in ovarian cancer and mucinous appendiceal tumors merits evaluation of more extensive resections in these patients. Standardized methods of synoptic reporting of CRS specimens could help capture vital prognostic information that may in future influence how these patients are treated.

Background: Peritoneal carcinomatosis is a common metastatic pattern in ovarian, gastric, colorectal and appendiceal cancer; systemic chemotherapy is the current standard of care for peritoneal metastatic disease; however, in a subset of patients its beneficial effect remains questionable. More effective perioperative chemotherapy is needed. Materials and Methods: PIPAC is a new treatment that applies chemotherapeutic drugs into the peritoneal cavity as an aerosol under pressure. It's a safe and feasible approach that improves local bioavailability of chemotherapeutic drugs as compared with conventional intraperitoneal ch...

Abstract The multimodal treatment of limited peritoneal metastases may improve prognosis in selected patients (pseudomyxoma peritonei, malignant peritoneal mesothelioma, colorectal, gastric and ovarian cancer) provided complete cytoreduction can be performed. Additive intraoperative hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is often performed. If the treatment is undertaken in experienced (and certified) centres, associated mortality is low. Intrapleural hyperthermic chemoperfusion (HITOC) can be performed in patients with pleural malignancies, mainly for malignant pleural mesothelioma or metastases from a...

Abstract The results of PRODIGE 7 study demonstrate that the use of HIPEC is not beneficial for patients in the treatment of colorectal carcinomatosis. Nevertheless, a recent study published in NewEnglandJournalofMedicine showed that hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) increased overall survival for patients with ovarian peritoneal carcinomatosis. Although, the emergence of targeted therapies (anti-angiogenic agents, PARP-inhibitors, anti-PDL1) results in new standards of treatment in first line or recurrence disease. In this general context, what is the potential interest of HIPEC for the treatment ...

Conclusions: This meta-analysis demonstrated that CD44 overexpression might be an unfavorable prognostic factor for CRC patients and could be used to predict poor differentiation, lymph node metastasis and distant metastasis. Introduction Although therapies for colorectal cancer (CRC) has improved in recent years, colorectal cancer is still the third most common cause of cancer related death worldwide (1). Metastasis are observed in 25% of patients at initial diagnosis and approximately 50% of patients will develop metastasis (2). Presently, the outcome prediction and the therapy schedule determination of CRC patie...

This study protocol was approved by the Institutional Review Board of the hospital. Data Collection Demographic and clinical data were retrieved from medical records in the hospital’s centralized database. These data included the age at diagnosis, International Federation of Obstetrics and Gynecologic (FIGO) stage, tumor histology and grade, type of surgery, and types and cycles of chemotherapy. Disease staging was based on the 2014 FIGO staging system. Optimal debulking surgery was defined as residual tumors with maximal diameters less than 1 cm; the others were defined as suboptimal debulking surgery. Disease rec...

AbstractTo explore the relationship of peritoneal, and rectal involvement with lymph nodal metastases to identify clinical parameters to guide systematic nodal dissection in advanced ovarian cancer (stage 3c). It is a retrospective study of stage III C epithelial ovarian cancers undergoing cytoreductive surgery with systematic nodal dissection, from January 2011 to December 2016. LS3 score is a cumulative score given for the presence of size 3 lesion (peritoneal disease measuring more than 5 cm) in regions 5, 6, and 7. The depth of rectal involvement was assigned progressive numerical values from 1 (for serosa) to maximum ...
